Product details

An easy and complete way to add secondary fermentation to your brew process.

A 5-gallon glass carboy with bung and airlock for a plug-and-play secondary fermentor for recipes that call for extended aging, dry hops, oak, or fruit - or for better clarity, less sediment in the bottle, and a smoother overall flavor in any beer. The 5-gallon size minimizes headspace to help reduce the chance of oxidation in your homebrew.

Some (but not all) of our recipe kits call for extended aging, dry hops, or additions of oak cubes or fruit purees after fermentation is complete but before the beer is bottled - this is where a 5-gallon secondary fermentor comes in. Better clarity, less sediment in the bottle, and a smoother overall flavor are fringe benefits. Plus, more carboys means you can brew more beer - everybody wins! Glass carboys are impermeable and can withstand more rigorous cleaning than plastic carboys. The 5-gallon size minimizes headspace to help reduce the chance of oxidation in your homebrew.

The perfect addition to any of our Beer Making Starter Kits.

Secondary Fermenter.

Glass Fermenter works good. I gave it a 3 for being harder to clean thru the little opening and its pretty heavy full of beer to handle without some sort of handle to carry it.

Well constructed, thick glass with a minimum of flaws, lots of reinforcing ribs but it still has a cleared spot for a stick-on thermometer (A nice touch). Currently using it as a primary for a reduced volume batch of seltzer, where it will let me see when it's settled enough to bottle.

Looked cracked. Contacted NB and they said it was just glass strands from the process of manufacturing. I hesitantly started a brew. No problems, no cracks but the worry was a bit much. Not really their fault. They said this is common I just wish I would have had some warning.
