Glass carboys are airtight, easily sanitized and do not hold an odor. They can be preferred to plastic buckets and plastic carboys because they do not scratch easily and do not break down over time. If handled carefully, a glass carboy will last decades while giving the same great performance for fermentations. Our 6.5 Gallon Glass Carboy seals with Small Universal Stopper or a standard 6.5 rubber stopper. Our packaging experts have worked hard to create the best packaging and handling methods for glass carboys, so that this product arrives safe and sound.
Be sure to check out the Brew Hauler for safely moving a full glass carboy or the Brewery Essentials Glass Carboy Buddy for all the accessories you'll need.

Browse 4 questions Browse 4 questions and 9 answersWhat are the deminsions of the carboy with the bubbler airlock connected?BEST ANSWER: My 6.5 gal carboy measures 26.5 inches tall using a plastic three piece bubbler airlock. You could probably gain another 1/2 to 1 inch if you lubricated the stem and really jammed the airlock down into the bung (generally I just push it in enough to get a nice tight seal, which leaves about 1 inch or so of stem between the top of the bung and the bottom of the airlock body). My carboy measures exactly 11.5 inches in diameter (this might vary slightly though because the glass isn't perfectly formed). Remember that the three piece airlock vents out the top, so unless you drill new holes on the side near the top, you need to leave enough space to allow the gas to escape.Are the 3 lines on the side protruding ? want to put a heater wrap and want it to lay flat .BEST ANSWER: They do protrude, as on most carboys, but I use a heat wrap and it works great. When I have it in my fridge I just tape it on with a single strip of electrical tape. When I have it in my cold basement I usually wrap a bath towel around it too just to keep a bit more heat in.What is the best way to clean these jugs. The small mouth is difficult to get around.BEST ANSWER: This is what I do, it works every time, requires no expensive equipment, and gets the carboys crystal clean.
Rinse out everything that is not stuck to the sides, I put in about a gallon of tap water and shake the carboy vigorously and drain, repeat at least once, until the rinse water is clear.
Fill the carboy with a PBW solution and let it sit a day or so, after a few hours, top off the water as the gases liberated by the PBW will cause the level to fall a few inches
Run a carboy brush around the neck and shoulder area, removing any "water ring".
Drain and rinse twice again, invert to dry.where is this product made?BEST ANSWER: This product is sourced from BSG HandCraft in MN. We do not have specific manufacturing details.
