Product details

The most helpful fermentor ever invented just got even better. Less effort. Better, clearer beer. Don't just cut out the hassle of cleaning, cut out siphoning altogether! Porting this revolutionary fermentor makes transferring as easy as the turn of a valve. No extra equipment, no extra cleaning, just a sanitized fermentor.

Now Includes the Big Mouth Bubbler® Carrying Harness for lifting, transporting and ensuring your Big Mouth Bubbler lid stays firmly in place during even the most intense fermentations.

Included:

  • Siphonless Big Mouth Bubbler® - Ported 5 Gallon Plastic Fermentor
  • Spigot
  • New Big Mouth Bubbler® Universal Lid
  • Universal Harness for Big Mouth Bubblers®

Required but not included:

The Siphonless Big Mouth Bubbler® Plastic isn't just easier to use. It's better for your beer. Fight oxidation and contamination by keeping your fermenter closed for transfers. 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.

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.

Make your brew day easier and your beer better with the siphonless Big Mouth Bubbler®.

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

Lid ports work with our Small Universal Stopper or a standard 6.5 rubber stopper.

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 fermenter.

Looking good!

As soon as the holidays are over I'm going to give this equipment a workout. Timing is everything and the Holidays messed me up.

Big Mouth Bubbler

The bubbler works nicely and clean out is easy. I would have given 5 stars except the lid leaves a lot to be desired. Instructions recommend using the harness to secure the lid. I tried to use the lid without securing it with the harness and sure enough, it popped out enough to break the seal. I am using elastic cords to hold the lid in place. The lid is definitely a design flaw.

A harness, really?

Loved the brewer but the harness wasn’t needed and just seemed to get in the way.

That lid!

This works great as my secondary fermenter. As others have noted, the lid likes to wiggle back off especially when the silicone seal or mouth gets wet (from sanitizer or when you rock your fermenter to degas the brew). The harness has a flap that goes over the lid and does a good job keeping it down. I don't love the harness with all the straps and handles swinging around. I've bought baseball bat weights (weighted rings) which I'll try to weigh the lid down so I can ditch the harness. I wish they'd upgrade to a threaded lid like on the Fermonsters or add spots for latch toggle clamps.

Great Choice for 3-5 Gallon Country Wine Batches

I already had 2 of the 1 Gallon Big Mouth Bubblers and knew I needed to upsize.
With almost 80 varieties of fruit trees on site some of the Country Wine batches would be bigger. These Fermenters are magic to use along with the mesh bags. Racking is a breeze, no fighting solids. I would and have recommended these fermenters to everyone.
