THE EASIEST VESSEL TO GET CLEAN & KEEP CLEAN.
When you put your brew in a fermentation vessel, your ONE expectation is that it will stay clean and that your yeast will be able to eat happily without anything funky going on. A strictly non-funky fermentation party. That's it. But how can you expect the cleanest and safest fermentation environment when you can’t even scrub the bottle with your own two hands? Superior to a carboy, this vessel was designed especially for sanitizing and fermentation.

DESIGNED BY BREWERS, FOR HOMEBREWING.
Brewing can be a messy business—but no more! Stick your arm in to clean the entire inside with a swipe of the cleaning cloth. No need to use an inefficient test tube brush to reach corners and curves. Enjoy total confidence that every hint of bacteria is gone, protecting you investment in brewtime. The wide-mouth makes it easy to add or remove ingredients. The screw top guarantees the top stays on through fermentation.

Please note: The Big Mouth Harness has been designed to specifically compliment this product. For this reason we do not recommend using the Brewhauler.

Great Carboy Review by Tristen
Rating
This big mouth Bubbler is very nice and so easy to work with. Cleaning is easy and stores way better than the higher carboys. The only things that I have to say that is even questionable is the thickness of the glass. Don't get me wrong, it's heavy, it just seems so lite and when I sit it on its side while cleaning it, I am a little more cautious with it. The only improvements I can see would be a better sealing system (just me, the seal is fine) and it would be great for it to have a measurement on it somewhere. I have 3 of these now and will be buying more. (Posted on 7/28/14)
So easy to clean Review by Heath

I have been using the 5 gal size for the secondary and the 6.5 for the primary. Have ran about 40 gallons of beer through them with no major issues. A few things I wouldn't mind upgraded though are:

A better connection for the blow off hose, so far haven't had any issue with foaming up at the lid it seems to have an adequate seal but would be nice to secure it without having to wrap some tape around it.

The foam seals are working fine once you get the lid nice and snug. Anyone know an easy way to get them out to clean them though. Takes a bit of finesse to get them out without causing damage.

Doesn't fit the stick on thermostats very well.

I just got two more in the mail today and they came with a hollow stopper that sits more securely over the hole for the airlock. Much better than the small ones that went seemed like they were going to pop out of the hole when wet. (Posted on 4/11/14)
Fantastic product! Review by James

I love my Big Mouth Bubbler. Easy to clean, easy to pour, etc...makes brewing a much more pleasurable experience. Mine came without the sealing gasket...no problem! A simple call to NB and not only did they send me a 5 pack of gaskets (I know only $0.99) but they sent me a nice hefty pint glass for my troubles. Again, not expensive items but nice touches for my troubles. Kudos NB. Look forward to future purchases. (Posted on 3/28/14)
Best investment yet Review by Jamie

I have read the other reviews and would agree this still isn't perfect but awfully close to it. The drilled cork you can order with it really doesn't fit well. The screw cap is hard to remove so it is difficult not to shake it up a little, would be nice if racking cane fit through small hole in lid. Blow off tubing fit well over small hole in cover, actually worked better than conventional carboy that way. So easy to clean old carboys are for sale if anyone wants them. (Posted on 3/25/14)
Thinking about it? Do it. Review by Charlie

This is the way carboys should have been, all the while. Vastly easier to use, at all stages. I purchased several, and don't really ever see using my old buckets or standard carboys, unless i'm in brewing crisis. :-)

Haven't felt confident enough in the odd little accessory that allows the lid to double as an airlock ... but i will try it at some point.

The harnesses for these are superb as well. (Posted on 3/17/14)
Advantages besides the obvious... Review by Steve
Rating
Unfortunately mine arrived without the cap sealing gasket but NB customer service is remedying that (as they do!) so for the first use I've wrapped the outside of the cap with food wrap just to be sure.

The pictures don't make it clear, but another reviewer referenced it, the cap has a smaller inner screw cap in the center, the top of which is flush with the main cap. Very useful when inverting the bubbler to soak in sanitizer. And of course on a 5" diameter foot print it's far more stable in that position than a regular carboy.

However, had that inner cap been of a slightly larger diameter I'd be able to get my auto siphon in there but no big deal.

It will drain on a regular carboy dryer if you also invert the dryer.

It's not as tall as a regular carboy so fits better in my temp controlled fridge and in storage.

Haven't cleaned it yet. But that's the last of my worries. That's why I bought it! (Posted on 1/24/14)
Two shipments, both broken Review by Kevin

The actual product is great. I have the 6.5 gallon one as well to use as a primary. (Posted on 1/24/14)
Almost perfect Review by Ruckus99ss
Rating
I just got mine and perfect secondary when adding things such as fruit. Not having to clean and sanitize a funnel to not make a mess adding fruit puree in was great. The reason I did not give it a 5 was the rubber stop for the hole is easily popped out with pressure. (Posted on 1/14/14)
Great new product Review by Tony

I received the Big Mount Bubbler as a gift and absolutely love it! A perfect combination of the ease of use/cleaning of a bucket, with all the advantages of a glass carboy. Will be using these from now on. (Posted on 1/8/14)
Just plain Awesome Review by Thomas
Rating
Bought one with a gift card I have, and I now wish that I had bought two. It was so easy to clean and sanitize, as well as dry. Have a beer fermenting away right now in it, and I wish I could trade in my carboy for another big mouth so that I would never have to clean that again. (Posted on 1/6/14)
