It gets better after the first use Review by Brian
Rating
Had a problem keeping it in my carboy on its first use. Striking it with a rubber mallet seemed to do the trick.
Second, third, and fourth use; no problems. Holds a seal just as good as a rubber stopper, wet or dry.
Bear with it the first round, get it broken in, and enjoy. (Posted on 9/9/13)
Pops Out Review by XPLSV
Rating
I've had problems with these popping out of my carboys. I've tried dry and wet...I just don't get a tight seal. I have found a use for them with my mix-stirrer when degassing wine. (Posted on 9/28/12)
Meh Review by Mikol

It worked great the first time, now the second time is when it won't stay in. Tried wetting it/drying it... I was actually wondering if these were single use for a while.. The worst part is that I'm not sure if I'm getting a good seal to prevent contamination! I guess we'll see in two months... (Posted on 7/15/12)
Slippery when wet Review by Sasha

Blasted things are very hard to keep in the bung when you've got even the slightest bit of water on the rim of the carboy or on the bung itself. (Posted on 5/26/12)
works great Review by shizzy

works great. All those who have issues with then popping back out, dunk your stopper in cheap vodka or simply let it dry for a few minutes after pulling it out of the starsan before pushing it in. (Posted on 3/31/12)
Does the job Review by Ryan
Rating
I agree the first use is the most tedious, but these work great on any use afterwards. I've had the same issues with the bung popping out on the first use and I waited until the bung dried a bit and it worked fine. These are way better than the rubber stoppers I have used in the past and they will not fall in the carboy. (Posted on 3/9/12)
Not that great. Review by Eric
Rating
One complaint that I would have would be that if you use star san, the stopper gets slippery will not grip onto the glass carboy when new, once the stopper is used once, it will be broken in (Like a new pair of shoes) and will work. (Posted on 1/18/12)
just bad Review by STEVE

I really dislike these stoppers. They don't stay in the carboy well and tend to pop out, not creating a good seal. (Posted on 11/21/11)
Works great, but you have to push it all the way in. Review by Jeff
Rating
Took me a while to figure out that you don't insert it partially like with a rubber stopper. It kept popping out of my Better Bottle until I jammed it all the way down the the lip. Now it's in there good and tight. (Posted on 6/19/11)
I use these in all of my carboys Review by carboy bungs
Rating
I wouldn't go back to regulary rubber stoppers after using these. They fit pretty tightly but are impossible to shove all the way through the neck of the carboy. (Posted on 5/23/11)
Great bung, even when you insert things into it! Review by Jon
Rating
Never had any issues, used in a variety of carboys. Not sure what some of the other people's issues are all about. Sometimes ya just gotta play with your bung until you find out what works for ya! (Posted on 2/16/11)
Good Product Review by Duxx
Rating
I love these little stoppers. They work sooo much better than the soft rubber ones. They cannot be pushed through into the carboy. I had this happen and it contaminated a whole 5 gallon batch.

Also they fit perfectly in 1/2 gallon V-8 plastic bottles that I use for yeast starters.

A 3 piece air lock fits all the way down to the top of the stopper and is held there very firmly. (Posted on 1/13/11)
Best For Better Bottle Review by DrawTap88
Fits perfectly and tightly in my better bottle, but doesn't fit my (old) 6 gallon glass carboy. (Posted on 12/30/10)
So-So Review by Henry
Rating
Fits in almost all carboys (wouldn't fit in one of my 5 gal. carboys); definitely just as slippery as rubber stoppers when wet. (Posted on 6/18/10)
Universally bad Review by Chris

I really dislike these stoppers. They don't stay in the carboy well and tend to pop out, not creating a good seal. Buy a normal stopper and save yourself the trouble. (Posted on 6/14/10)
