Product Details
Glass carboys are airtight, easily sanitized and do not hold an odor. They can be preferred to plastic buckets and plastic carboys because they do not scratch easily and do not break down over time. If handled carefully, a glass carboy will last decades while giving the same great performance for fermentations. Seal with a Small Universal Stopper or a standard 6.5 rubber stopper. Our packaging experts have worked hard to create the best packaging and handling methods for glass carboys, so that this product arrives safe and sound.

Be sure to check out the Brew Hauler for safely moving a full glass carboy or the Brewery Essentials Glass Carboy Buddy for all the accessories you'll need.

20 pounds of honey, ruined with a flawed carboy!
Making my first batch of mead. Added all the ingredients. Put the bung and bubble lock on and as I was walking out of the room, I heard a 'clunk' and turned to see 20 pounds of honey, 4 gallons of spring water and all the yeast and nutrient gushing out of a hole in side of my carboy. A piece of glass the size of my fist had just 'popped' out of the side. So upset!!!

Mine cracked.
My 6-gallon carboy cracked as I was cleaning it just now. It was not dropped or mechanically stressed in any way (like lifting a full carboy by the handle around the neck, for example). Perhaps the hot tap water I was using for cleaning caused it to crack but I've been cleaning them with hot water for years. The triangular piece of glass came out from the upper 'shoulder' of the carboy. I have several and I can't be sure which one this was, but it was no older than 4 years old. I'll probably replace it with a 5 gallon eventually.

Just under 6 gal?
Nice sturdy carboy, easy to transport and store. The one I received holds slightly less than 6 gallons, maybe a quart less. Go with a 6.5 gallon carboy if you have 6 gallons to store.

It ain't pretty
Quite a few imperfections in the glass. Bubbles, streaks and something black in one of the air bubbles. It seems to be structurally sound and I have used it (Black IPA, great by the way) but the Italian 5 gallon I have has a lot nicer finish.

Cracked
Mine just crack when I was botting beer. Just sitting on the floor with sanitizer while I was siphoning. 5 gal of Sani water gushed out on the kitchen floor and carpet in the next room. Thank god it wasn't beer!!! Never put any hot liquid in it expect cleaning with warm tap water. alway carful never dropped it. Only been brewing bout 2 years since I got it. I Don't get it. Now I'm nervous to even use mine 5 gal one! And now have to buy a new one before I can make beer again! Disappointed.

Is there a closed seal for storing water? I don't need it to breathe.
A shopper on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can buy a stopper with no hole for an airlock that way it will be totally sealed
Can these carboys be autoclaved? What is the temperature tolerance? Has it been tested? Thanks!
C M on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We just use pressure washer and sanitizer
Can you please tell me the height and width of the 6 gallon glass carboy and also for the 6.5 gallon glass carboy.
R I on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 6 gallon carboy is about 22" tall (without airlock) and about 11" in diameter.

The 6.5 gallon one is about 22.5" tall (without airlock) and about 12" in diameter.
