- Product Details
- 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. Seal with a 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.
- 4.3 / 5.016 ReviewsMine cracked.My 6-gallon carboy cracked as I was cleaning it just now. It was not dropped or mechanically stressed in any way (like lifting a full carboy by the handle around the neck, for example). Perhaps the hot tap water I was using for cleaning caused it to crack but I've been cleaning them with hot water for years. The triangular piece of glass came out from the upper 'shoulder' of the carboy. I have several and I can't be sure which one this was, but it was no older than 4 years old. I'll probably replace it with a 5 gallon eventually.May 22, 201620 pounds of honey, ruined with a flawed carboy!Making my first batch of mead. Added all the ingredients. Put the bung and bubble lock on and as I was walking out of the room, I heard a 'clunk' and turned to see 20 pounds of honey, 4 gallons of spring water and all the yeast and nutrient gushing out of a hole in side of my carboy. A piece of glass the size of my fist had just 'popped' out of the side. So upset!!!January 12, 2016Response from Northern BrewerHi Christine,
