Better Bottle™ Plain 3 Gallon Carboy

Better Bottle™ Plain 3 Gallon Carboy

Product Review (submitted on November 21, 2013):
I brew 3 gallon BIAB batches, and own 8+ 3 gallon better bottles. They are much easier to handle then the glass carboys I was using before.

These better bottles are perfect as secondary fermenters (primary in buckets, top-crop yeast, then transfer so I can use the bucket for something else). I have also used them as primary fermenters for 10L batches (with fermcap), and I have several sours aging in them long-term. They are light-weight, easy to move around, and usually clean after a 24-hour soak with oxy-clean. The wider mouth is helpful for dry-hopping or adding fruit/oak.

Be careful not to use hot-water when cleaning them.
