Works Great
Anyone who has ever tried cleaning a carboy with a brush knows the difficulty in getting the kreusan ring cleaned. The stiffness of the brush handle coupled with bristles that don't reach where they need to makes it nearly impossible. This Carboy Cleaner does an excellent job and makes it a snap, the ring just disappears.

Cleaner and Faster
Great investment to cut down time spent cleaning and get better results. I can agree with all previously posted points. I still use a brush and rinse to get the chunky stuff out. Most excited about needing only 1 to 1.5 quarts of cleaner (instead of 5 gallons) to finally be able to strip the inside surface super clean. Every once in awhile the bung guide needs to be held in place to prevent it from wobbling out...no big deal.

Worth it
Great product for both 5 and 6 gallon carboys. Wish I had bought one sooner.

Works great, but watch the video online for helpful tips
Works great, but watch the video online for helpful tips. It is a real timesaver and does the job as advertised.

Tricky at first but worth it!
Great tool! Makes my carboys sparkle. The first couple of tries i was a little to aggressive with the trigger on my drill. Too many rpm's are not good. Start slow and add the speed as you see the scrub arms start to work. I use my brush to knock down the heavy gunk, give it a quick rinse, then add the cleanser and spin that sucker to my little hearts desire! It's a beauty! Keep brewin' !!!

Works great if you think about what you are doing...
I got the carboy cleaner a few weeks ago and have already used it a lot. The people that have complained about it balling up, really don't know what they are doing! This thing works awesome! The Key is to make sure the pads are pointing in different directions before you start your drill. If you are not frantic, impatient and if you can manage to remember to split the pads before pulling the trigger, then you won't have a problem with it balling on you.My only minor gripe is that the pads are not balanced very well, so as the drill speed increases, you can get into some big harmonic oscillations. Nothing a strong arm cannot control but if you are not paying attention with a firm grip on both the drill and the carboy, holding the stopper down, you *could* smack the bar off the neck of the carboy possibly cracking or breaking it. Other than that, it makes short work of my carboys, primaries and even kettles.Highly recommend this product!

Excellent
The only thing I dislike more than bottling is cleaning my carboys with a brush. This thing saves time, cleaning solution, and my elbow. Wobbles the carboy a little at high speeds, but I can easily live with that. I've never found a way to get my carboys as clean as this product does.

Amazing
Throw away your brush... My carboy has not been this clean in years...

great time saver
Very fast and effective for cleaning carboys, just use your carboy brush to get the chunky stuff out and then send this in for the final sparkling clean carboy in mere seconds. Works ok for cleaning kegs, tends to wabble without being braced. Either way I love this product.

Works great on glass carboys!!!
This is great on standard glass carboys. The pads do wear through on the edges eventually with rigorous use but replacement is easy when it does wear out.

Does SKU40655 "The Carboy Cleaner" work well on 6.5 gallon glass carboys?
I M on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have only used it on a 5 gallon, but I imagine it would work just as well. I believe the 6.5 gallons are just a bit taller, but the shaft should be long enough for it.
