Carpet! How retro.

Frankly the genius who thought of putting upholstery on floors should be shot

Aside from one finished part of the basement the carpet on the stairs was the only carpet in the house. Upstairs all hard wood floors. Down stairs now all tile. 100% Carpet Free.

Good to hear all is well.  Nothing more frustrating than ending up with a potentially infected brew.

Ending up with a perfectly good brew and dropping and breaking the carbon and spilling it all down the carpeted stairs while carrying it to the kitchen to keg? Way more frustrating, trust me. ;)

How about bumping one carboy full of triple decocted German pils into another containing the same and shattering both of them?

Dang.  Maybe that's when you stopped believing in decoctions.
I was much luckier when I bumped two carboys together.  One of them cracked from top to bottom, but the beer stayed inside long enough for me to rack it out.

Hopefully, you did not sustain a serious injury.

You dont consider losing two batches serious injury?

Not as much as losing a toe!  :)

Thankfully no.  But I must have been lucky judging by the way they shattered.

I once slipped on a wet floor in my basement hurrying to the phone, slipped and broke a carboy and got a nice gash on my leg. Nothing serious but it made me realize how dangerous it could be for the kids if they came running around the corner and fell into them. This was years ago and I moved mostly to buckets afterward - and got the dangerous carboys out of the way of major foot traffic! I now have 4 plastic Spiedels and I really like them.

10 years ago my buddy sliced his hand open to the bone after breaking a glass carboy. He gave me all nine of his glass carboys after that and I use them for sour beers, wine/mead, or long term beer aging.
