So last night I went to transfer my second batch of Skeeter Pee into my fairly new 5 gal glass carboy.. Just as I was about to start, I noticed a small crack towards the top of the carboy, right were it transitions from flat on the side to the rounded portion going to the neck.. Arrgghh!!! No idea how it happened!!!

:po


Luckily this was not my first batch of Pee, so I grabbed a 6 gal carboy, transferred the Pee, and topped with a gallon of my previous batch.. I did not trust the 5 gal with the crack, especially since I needed to degas.. Should I trust it for anything?? Or just toss it... So aggravating!!!

We have been getting snow all day. There were whiteouts often. Good thing it is melting here in the valley. They are expecting over a foot in the higher spots. Then in the 80's this weekend!

Well in most cases snow is better than a killer frost at this time of year. That is as long as it not a heavy wet snow that will cause damage. Plus any snow you get now will melt in a day or two.
