The fermentor that started it all, reinvented again! We’ve taken the revolutionary Big Mouth Bubbler® glass and re-engineered it with the help of world-class Polish master glassmakers to ensure sturdy, solid, superior craftsmanship.

Extra-thick glass eliminates oxygen permeation and keeps your brew safe. Banish bugs and bacteria with perfectly air-tight seals from a carefully ground, completely smooth and obsessively flat neck top.

In the evolution of Big Mouth Bubbler®, we’ve added some perks! Instantly measure volume with gallon graduation marks. Easier transfer of clear beer with a taller, narrower body while ensuring less liquid is left behind.


Caution: Big Mouth Bubbler® is a large hand-formed glass item that can be easily damaged if not used with proper care and handling. It may have variations in shape and thickness, and will show the normal bubbling characteristics of hand-formed glass. Extreme changes in temperature or sudden contact with hard surfaces may cause glass to crack. Handle with care–we strongly recommend using the Big Mouth Bubbler® carrying harness for increased safety and ease of handling.

Product Details

Bid your funnel and siphon sayonara! Pour cooled wort directly from your kettle into the Big Mouth Bubbler® for instant transfers. Pitch yeast without it running down the sides of your fermentor. Easily add flavorings to secondary, and then just as easily remove them!

Gallon graduation markings help ensure precise measurement of fermenter volume.

Last but not least, you asked and we listened—more space for the adhesive FermagraF° LCD thermometer than any other glass fermentor! The most obsessively engineered glass fermentor ever created—we are proud and excited to introduce the new and improved Big Mouth Bubbler® EVO 2.

Note: We still strongly recommend the Big Mouth Bubbler® carrying harness.

Each Big Mouth Bubbler® Includes:

  • Big Mouth Bubbler® Glass Fermentor, Universal Lid*
  • Big Mouth Bubbler® Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

*The new Big Mouth Universal Lid (included) fits all Big Mouth Bubbler® Fermentors. The Big Mouth Bubbler® Universal Lid is just like a traditional carboy bung, only bigger! Just as easy to sanitize and set in place too. Ribbed silicone rings ensure a positive seal to keep out pests, while the non-threaded design allows the lid to move preventing an out-of-control fermentation from dangerously pressurizing your fermentor.

You will also need a Small Universal Carboy Bung - drilled or solid.

*Pro Tip: Save your box and use it as a cover for your fermenter!

5 gallon fermenters are best for the secondary conditioning stage of beer fermentation. The smaller size eliminates extra airspace in the fermenter reducing the chances of oxidation which can stale the beer prematurely. Also available as a 6.5-gallon primary fermentor.

Handy Item
Really like using this fermentor. Wish the universal lid worked better. I carry it inside a small reinforced muck bucket due to its fragile nature. Great for dry hopped beers.

Horrible lid design
No complaints about the glass bubbler itself. Works great and decent thickness and quality glass. However, the lid is worthless. I’ve tried putting it on wet and dry and it won’t stay on. I ended up throwing the lid away and using the screw on type from one of my old big mouth fermenters. NB please figure this out and switch back to the screw on lids!!!!

Great Product!
The Big Mouth Bubbler® EVO 2 works great for my home wine making. The large mouth makes filling and cleaning a breeze. I have several of these now and love them. The universal lid seals great.

The product looks nice and would work well for a secondary. For a primary, no. The lid will not stay sealed and causes a mess. Next time I'll try the bigger one.

Good quality
Same complaint as many. The seal for the cap leaves a lot to be desired. I came up with my fix. I use a 5 lb weight Olympic size to weigh down the lid. The quality of glass is better than some other brands.

Secondary only
I wish this was stated in the description, but this fermentor is for secondary only, or 2.5 gallon batches. It says 5 gallon and it means it. 5 gallons all the way to the tip top. Now I'm stuck with a fermentor I will rarely use. Get the 6.5 gallon only.

Poor lid
I love that I can dry hop easily and cleanly by dropping a hopsack in this fermenter. I don't love that the lid always wants tp press itself up. When you try to reseat the lid, it spurts all your airlock liquid out. Then it just pops itself back up. I'm not sure it gives an airtight seal like the stopper and carboy. I haven't tasted a finished batch yet, so I cannot say that it spoils batches just yet...but, I'm curious to see.

Nice piece but...,
...the main top pops right off immediately. I needed tape and a weight to make sure my brew didn't get contaminated during secondary. Besides that it's a good solid piece of glass. Can't win em all

Nice Carboy except for the lid/seal
Works as a very nice 2ndary fermenter. Heavy duty glass that keeps head space to a minimal to prevent oxidation during conditioning. So why is this only 4 stars? The lid does not make a perfect air lock seal. I have used duct tape to hold down. Would not recommend to use as a primary fermenter.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Big Mouth Bubbler Plastic does have indentations as markings but does not have numbers 1 - 5 or .
You have to count them to determine at what level you are at.
where are the 5 and 6 gal marks on the carboy? I am assuming that the 5 gal mark is at the base of the neck when it finishes tapering off?
A S on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes the 5 gallon hash is right at the base of the neck where the bubbler bigins to flare. Little to no breathing space for primary but great for secondary.
Any chance the lid issue will ever be resolved? This is kinda ridiculous - after using star San to sanitize, without anything in the big mouth bubbler the lid pops off... I've gone through an entire roll of electricians tape in two days while fermenting, retaping 3 times.
This is useless for fermenting, worst vessel I've ever used, too bad- made by Brewers for Brewers?
A D on Mar 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Contact customer service if experiencing an issue with a product. Quit wasting tape, maybe try a weight to hold it down. Contact customer service to get help to see if we can advise on use or find out if its just a defective unit. I tried but could not find any orders under your information but we are happy to help, give us a call! Cheers.
Has the lid issue been resolved? I have no Big Mouth products so not sure if the universal lid is the issue or the solution.
A D on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this for my son. I asked him this. Here is his response:

"I did notice the first time I used it that when the beer fermented, that the bubbles came both out the top of the lid and the sides of the lid... The second time I brewed I didn't fill it quite as high and haven't had any problems"
Is the bottom flat like a flask so a stir bar won't fly off? Thanks.
R I on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the stir plate motor and magnet are strong enough, it will work. You can see a demonstration in this video, at the 1:10 mark:
