Great secondary fermenter Review by James

Easy to clean and harder to break than you would think. Get a handle for easier manipulation. (Posted on 2/15/14)
Great carboy, at a great price!!! Review by Billy

Broke my last carboy during a move. This 5 gal carboy was the best price I could find anywhere and works just as advertised. Highly recommended; fast shipping to IL. (Posted on 1/13/14)

a homebrewing mainstay Review by Clint

glass carboy. durable, doesn't hold odors, fairly easy to clean... can't argue with a classic. I use the 5 gallon both as a secondary and as a primary for 3 gallon batches. works like a charm. (Posted on 12/19/13)
Great Review by Pete

Was nervous about a huge glass bottle being shipped, but was packed well and was terrific for secondary fermentation (Posted on 11/26/13)
Great Secondary Review by Pat
Rating
This works great for a secondary fermenter. I have had some overflow issues when I used it for a primary fermenter. Not enough head space to allow for foam expansion. I plan on using a 6 gallon as a primary from now on. (Posted on 10/31/13)
Brewing Equipment Review by Cathy

We recently moved and no longer were we able to share equipment with our son. Ordered new equipment and supplies. Was able to get exactly what we needed and was delivered very quickly. Carboy just finishing the first brew. (Posted on 10/21/13)
I just bought a second Review by Steve

I received my first 5 gal glass carboy as part of the deluxe starter kit. The glass was thick, and the carboy was well made. When I decided that I needed another secondary, this carboy was my first choice. (Posted on 10/13/13)
Very good Review by Luis
Rating
Glad to have this addition to my brewing equipment. Nice and sturdy, and well packed for safe shipping. I would, however, second recommendations to get a handle to go with it. (Posted on 10/11/13)
Great product and great customer service!! Review by Bradley
Rating
I initially got this carboy as a part of the deluxe kit, and unfortunately when it arrived it was cracked. Bent the very next Dari communicated with the NB people, sent a couple pictures and by days end there was a new one in the mail and days later the new carboy had arrived! Such great service! On top of that, the carboy works great and looks superb. Makes me very enjoyably sophisticated. (Posted on 10/1/13)
Excellent Review by Dyan

I shopped around and found the price to be one of the best. The carboy is easy to clean and easy on the eye as the brew ferments! (Posted on 9/29/13)

old reliable Review by Casey

Easy to clean and fun to watch beer become beer. Does get a little slippery but you can always get a carboy carrier for the top. (Posted on 9/2/13)
Great for secondary Review by Thomas
Rating
This glass carboy was nicely packed so no bad surprise when I unpacked it. Bought this initially with a carboy handle as otherwise it might slip from my grip when wet! (Posted on 8/28/13)
perfect Review by Bryan

This carboy is high quality and perfect for secondary (Posted on 7/24/13)
Very Pleased Review by Brian

Solid built, does the job well works perfectly with the bung associated with it. Packed and shipped superbly, I was surprised as I normal make the trek to the store to buy glass items but didn't have time so this was my first shipped carboy. I will definitely order more as needed. (Posted on 7/24/13)
Nice Old World Feel Review by Peter
Rating
I have a half dozen of these now and love them. When you stand back and look at a bunch of secondary glass carboys doing their thing, you just have to smile. This 5 gallon size is NOT for fermenting in my book. Buy the bigger 6 or 6.5 for that. Buy the solid rubberish types and they stick like glue......... especially when you try to take them out after 6 weeks. But, at least they stay put when initially installed. (Posted on 4/9/13)
Don't Forget a Handle Review by Chris
Rating
There's just something about a big glass jug that makes me happy. But it's also an extremely heavy big glass jug. So be sure to get a carboy handle to go with this. (Posted on 1/18/13)
Standard blow-off hose will not fit Review by John
Rating
Seems like a standard glass carboy, but I got a nasty surprise when I was finished brewing and went to insert a standard 1-1/4" blow off hose and found that it was slightly too small for the opening. I was able to throw something together with a bung, but it would have been nice to know this before purchase. (Posted on 9/10/12)
agree with brans041 Review by mikemet
Rating
great carboy- very durable. Bung really made me nervous. It would not stay. I had to dry the inside multiple times before the bung took. Im afraid to touch it now :)

I gave it 5 stars. I want a few more exactly like this. (Posted on 7/6/12)
Very Nice Review by John

It's nice to find a solid glass Carboy that's been the standard for ever. These cleanup so easy, don't get scratched and cloudy. The way everything should be made, to last and last. (Posted on 6/4/12)

Nice, sturdy (aka, HEAVY) carboy. (Posted on 5/26/12)
One Complaint Review by brans041
Rating
This is your standard carboy, very robust, but don't drop it (obviously). One complaint that I would have would be that if you use star san, the neck gets slippery, and does not hold onto a new Carboy Bung for Glass Carboys - Drilled (SKU: 7081). Once you use the bung, it holds from then on. (Posted on 1/18/12)
