Fermentation Equipment

Welcome to the Fermentation Equipment page! When it comes to primary fermentation, most of us will use a standard food grade plastic bucket. They're simple, cheap, easy to clean, and they work great. Some folks like to ferment in a 6.5 gallon glass carboy, so you can watch your beer ferment like you're at the aquarium on 2-for-1 day. For a secondary vessel, you'll need a carboy that is the same volume as your batch so as to eliminate head space and oxidation. There is also great debate about glass vs. plastic. Plastic is much lighter, doesn't shatter, and has a larger opening at the mouth. The major drawback of plastic is that it will scratch and score if you use a brush to clean it. Glass does not have this concern, but it is very heavy and prone to shattering. Both work well and, as far as your beer is concerned, there is no difference between them.
