Never open the lid to insert an auto-siphon, just turn a valve and you're set. Best of all, you'll have clearer beer. Gently rack liquid from the spout into secondary without disturbing the trub.
Make your brew day easier and your beer better with the siphonless Big Mouth Bubbler®.
The new Big Mouth Bubbler® Universal Lid fits all Big Mouth Bubbler® Fermenters. 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. Removable ribbed silicone ring ensures 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 fermenter.
Important Note: Do not fill any Plastic Big Mouth Bubbler® fermenters with very hot liquid - temp should not exceed 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 Celcius)
*Pro Tip: Save your box and use it as a cover for your fermenter!
BIG MOUTH BUBBLER® Product Specifications:
|Capacity:||5 gallon||6.5 gallon|

Note: We recommend a soft cloth for cleaning the inside. Standard carboy brushes will scratch plastic fermenters leaving places for grime to hide. A warm cleaning solution will suffice. Do not use hot water on plastic fermenters of any sort. The Big Mouth Bubbler® is compatible with a standard carboy dryer when the dryer is used inverted.
I have only used this carboy only once, but enjoyed having the spigot for bottling and clean up was really easy! Bye bye glass carboys!
Works just like it should. Now own three.
It is super convenient to drop in ingredients while fermenting and a lot lighter to carry than the glass carboys.
Easy to clean. The lid goes on too easy to wanting to pop back out when wet with sanitizer. Dry it seems to want to drag as you push it in. A balancing act that is really not not issue or a worry compared to many other reviews. Once the yeast is pitched and the harness is attached where is it going to go? and yes it seals just fine. The harness is a bit cumbersome at first. It takes a bit of fussing to get on and adjusted. I used to take off when dirty and wash it in the washing machine. Now I just leave them on and when the inside of the bubbler gets washed I wash the outside with harness on. Tip up side down and let dry. Works perfect. The spigot is the most important feature. Taking samples is easy, especially having a table to set it on with spigot hanging over just a bit. Closed transfer into a keg helps keep O2 to a minimum if not eliminated. Gas line to top of Bubbler and beer line from spigot to a sanitizer purged keg.
Love the siphonless feature; worked really well with a brew. That being said. I absolutely HATED the harness. Extremely cumbersome, bulky and really rather useless. The lid with rubber oring is also horrible. It does not seal even with the harness adding pressure on top. I have other big mouth bubblers and figured out how to get a perfect seal step by step; this did not work at all. Very disappointing. Negatives aside, the actual fermenter was good and worked.
