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. Say goodbye to your glass carboys!

Well worth it Review by TC

Great innovation -- cleaning and pitching is a completely different experience. Like others, I'd prefer a more sturdy cap with a thermowell-ready stopper and more smooth surface space for a "fermometer" strip. Its dimensions render it somewhat unwieldy, so get the straps.

Awesome! Review by Michael

Why didn't they think of this years ago is all I'm asking. This turns the tedious task of cleaning carboys into a 5 minute job (which may even be on the high side). I've since replaced all my carboys with these badboys. (Posted on 7/29/14)
Excellent carboys 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. Only thing 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 6 of these now and will be buying more. (Posted on 7/28/14)
Pros and Cons Review by Scott
Rating
Pros:The mouth opening of the carboy is obviously great for cleaning, dry hopping, adding fruits/etc. That’s obviously the biggest reason you buy this, and pretty much supercedes any other feature. There’s no debating the value of the wide mouth opening. The harness for the carboy fits snug and tight and really alleviates any concerns for carrying these things around

Cons: The lid is plastic and really not made of great material. As mentioned in another review, I’d love to see a stainless lid or something not made of flimsy plastic. I’d love to see something similar to a seal and quality of a Mason jar. The hole for the stopper is just too small. Fermentation has advanced to the point a lot of us using thermowells and other gadgets. The inability to use these products with my Bubbler hinders my enthusiasm for the product. The shape of the glass doesn’t really allow for use of a Fermometer on the outside.

In summary, the concept of the Bubbler is a winner but the practicality of using it as a vessel for primary fermentation with a thermowell isn’t great.

Here’s to hoping that someone brings a product to market fairly quickly to replace the flimsy lid.

Great Carboy Review by Jason

I think everything important about this product has already been said. But for clarity's sake I just want to add that you don't need an additional airlock with this carboy. It comes with a clearish plastic cap that threads onto the small center opening in the lid, and when it is put on, the lid itself becomes the airlock. Just add water to the moat, although I usually use diluted sanitizer. I've used this airlock system for many batches and it has worked fine. I have yet to practice cold crashing, so I can't speak for that instance. For a standard 5 gallon batch, if you use a 6.5 gallon bubbler for your primary fermentation, there really isn't any need for a blowoff hose, plenty of headroom, and the built in airlock works fine. One other thing about the bubbler that could be improved is that the glass is a little bit on the thin side. I would feel better about it if it were a little thicker, even if it costs more to produce. Aside from that, this thing is great. Easy to clean. Fantastic! (Posted on 6/22/14)
Great Fermenter, just needs a little tweak for a thermowell Review by John

Great fermenter. By carving out the top of the airlock lid, I was able to fit in my 6.5 stopper with an airlock hole and thermowell.

The pool style airlock is still active, so I could just have the thermowell on top if you like. My only recommendation is that they start selling replacement air lock lids so I could feel a little better hollowing it out. (Posted on 6/8/14)
Really impressed with this product Review by Hekkubus
Rating
What's not to love about this fermenter? I love the accessibility for cleaning, but it's also easy for pouring in the wort and pitching the yeast. The top is an air lock in and of itself, but decreasing the temperature for cold crashing, even gradually, dries it up. Use the stopper and a regular air lock, and you're golden. Seriously, if you're looking to get a new fermenter, try this one. Also, make sure to get the harness for moving it. (Posted on 5/15/14)
Perfect for 5 gallon batches; easy handling, fast and easy cleaning. excellent design. Review by Patricio

Excellent design that allows you inoculate the yeast without the need of a funnel to do this. You can see what is happening inside during the entire process. For cleaning just get your whole arm inside and rub with the included cloth and all stains of krausen will disappear. All this get your fermentor just ready for PBW and rinse. Very handy if you do good cleaning practices. (Posted on 5/12/14)
As advertised !!! Review by Allan

5 stars, not much else to add. Would be nice if it had a volume indicator marks and the lid equip could use a design tweak to be more secure, but great overall. (Posted on 5/7/14)
