I’m in a bind (no pun intended), I let my friend borrow a bottom of a demijohn container, and I have a huge mead project to start. I have recently become very worried about my glass demijohns. They are big, bulky, and made of oh so brittle glass. I wanted to make a cordage bag to protect them and make moving them around a little more safe. (Incidentally, while making this project, my one Demijohn broke into 1000 pieces during sanitization, so this project is even more warranted. Oh man was that scary when it broke O_O)
I had the cordage lying around from a nice sale at Ace hardware. I looked up some how to’s on my favorite DIY site and found an excellent starter project.
The result is a very sturdy and unique carboy bag that will protect if from bumps while I’m cleaning and transporting it. I also added a handle line so that it could be more easily moved.
I’m sad that I had to lose a demijohn today, but I’m really glad I have a method of protecting the new one. If anyone knows of where you can get Lexan demijohns of 15 gallon size, please let me know?
