I noticed your carboy handle in the first picture, figure I'd add that my LHBS told me to avoid those. They stress the neck way too much, especially if you pick it up by it. They recommended I get one of these for moving mine around.

u/ebgngrvgzber · 17 pointsr/Homebrewing

Those things make the neck snap off if any liquid is inside. You really want one of the strap-based carriers instead, like this:

Glass carboy supporter here. I use the nylon brew straps whenever moving my glass. Next to my wort chiller, it's probably the best tool I have in my arsenal.

If you're careful and don't use one of those carboy handles, you'll be fine. This is the carrier you want.

I had initially looked at these last year when they were announced, but backed off after reading about how thin the glass was/are, and allegedly being prone to breakage, bad sealing lid, etc. I use glass almost exclusively, the only PET carboy I have is used solely for making IPAs, which have monstrous hop additions, so dry hopping in the wide PET mouth and dumping hop sludge is simpler - but everything else is glass, baby.

These are appealing to me due to the size, 6.5 gallons to account for massive hop matter volume loss with an extra wide mouth - hello, new glass IPA carboy!

The only drawback - the price: $54.99 for the carboy alone + ~$20.00 for the straps (which are a no-brainer for glass). Not sure if these would work with my BrewHauler straps, or if they'll fit into a milk crate. If not, then I cannot justify spending ~$75 for another fermenting vessel.

Alas, the woes of beermaking...

You should try those 'carboy carriers', like this. I have some for my plastic carboys and they work great.

u/drgath · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

It was one like this, with a plastic buckle. The stitching was fine, but give the plastic buckle enough pressure, at it unbuckles itself. After that one incident, it immediately went in the trash as I realized how bad of an idea it was.

As long as they're quality, the netting ones look safe. Definitely don't try to use the carboy handles when it's full. That's not what they were meant for, and I've experienced it slipping off, no matter how tight I made it.

Still, nothing can go wrong in a keg in a bathtub (right?), so that's my preferred fermenter now.

u/thesmilies · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Brew haulers work just fine with full carboys.

u/DystopianSobriety · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

As /u/BrewN00b suggested I use the "Brew Hauler". You can get them on Amazon for ~$11 (I get mine from my LHBS for ~$13). It makes the PITA of carboy hauling easyer and more importantly safer.

u/weeglos · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Your cost: $14.99 plus labor

Brew Hauler on Amazon: $8.69 + $4.85 (shipping) = $13.54

I congratulate you on your DIY, but you're not saving money with this, I'm sorry to say...

u/mizzikee · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Excellent suggestions. Well written. As far as getting stuff in and out of a chest freezer, most kegs have handles so that's take care of. But for getting carboys in and out these work fine.

u/tinwhistler · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

You can get one at Amazon if your brew store doesn't have one.

It's not quite as nice as the one I used to have (like 15 years ago), but it gets the job done.

u/d_rek · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Amazon has had them on sale for around $5/each for a few weeks.

I've been using these:
with glass carboys to help make carrying easier (and eliminate some dropping risk)
Don't know much about the other differences, but if you decide to go glass, get something like these :)

u/jonsey32 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

If people are paying $US8 for this then I imagine that there's a market for a carboy carrier/cover/insulator. It's a neat idea if nothing else.

u/10Quacks · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I have a small chest freezer that fits one 6.5 gallon carboy with a couple inches on all sides, and a little step for holding a pitcher of sanitizer for the blow-off tube. Just get one large enough to fit your fermentation vessel with some room to spare. Also, for chest freezers, CarboyCarriers are a must.

u/FantasticFeats · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Holy shitsnacks! I've had one slip the collar of standard carboy handle before but the worst that happened there was some minor cuts (and of course 5 gallons of beer that was ready to ferment going everywhere). I double checked afterwards and the handle was screwed tight and the appropriate size, so now I use carboy carrier straps exclusively:

Get well soon man.

u/ChewWork · 0 pointsr/Homebrewing

For about the same price you can get yes there is shipping added that too. BTW i made my own as well, but it comes pretty close that price.
