12 gallon carboy is a disaster waiting to happen.

Nice job on the beer though.:thumb:

plz explain
It's heavy.

Carboys have a tendency to slip out of ones hands. I don't see a handle on that one and even with a handle, the weight of it could pull the neck off.

At ten gallons that thing is close to or more then 80 pounds. When 80 plus pounds of glass carboy slips out of your hands bad things happen.

I like beer very much. So much that my awesome wife bought me a beer making kit for my B-day last week. I'll be starting my first batch of a basic brown ale tomorrow. Those carboys are nice..maybe someday...

I'd rather get a massive plastic conical before I get something that big in glass.

Wort looks good though. Super Hopped IPA is next on my list (pliny style).
