Me three also "secondary" in the keg if you want to call it that. But that means I serve out of the secondary fermenter as well.
Last week I cut about 3/4" off the diptubes so they're way above any sediment. Finally after 4 years I bothered to do it. Wondering how efficacious this will be. Certainly not worried about the couple cups of beer this'll cost me.
To me secondary= bright-tank and a keg is perfect for that. I just happen to serve out of my bright-tanks...
Sorry to hear about the accident. The glass aspect of carboys is a major deterrent... Nick an artery- maybe die or sever tendons that will take expensive surgery to correct. The only upside is long-term storage. This they do extremely well. So do kegs.
