Browse 9 questions Browse 9 questions and 32 answersDoes a lid come with it?BEST ANSWER: No, you have to buy the lid separate. There are two types-- metal with silicon seal and aplastic polymers type with plastic seal. You can buy them individual or in packs of 12 which is a good buy. Even though I wanted to get away from plastic I like those better than the metal. Call customer services, they can give you price. It is a good buyHow big is mouth opening?BEST ANSWER: The mouth opening is roughly the size of an American half dollar, or British 50 pence piece. In other words, it is not very big. I have three, but I am upgrading soon for various reasons. You will need a wire brush for cleaning, and you will certainly need a funnel to fill the jug. The best way to clean it (in my experience) is to rinse it immediately after you rack your beer (or cider perhaps) to a secondary or bottles; then fill it will hot water and soap and let sit to loosen any debris. Use your wire brush to clean the soft remnants. They certainly are nice for one gallon batches, however.Is this made in the USA?BEST ANSWER: Yes, these one gallon jugs are US-made. They are from Arkansas Glass. - Mike W, Midwest SuppliesWill a 6.5 stopper work with this jug?BEST ANSWER: I do not know. I have only used the caps you can buy there with the bottles. We use them to put reverse osmosis water in for home consumption.i'm looking to use this for coins.. is the opening big enough to accommodate quarters?BEST ANSWER: It will accommodate quarters with no problem. Don't have it by me or I'd provide opening dimensions.Is there enough room for head space with 1 gallon of liquid?BEST ANSWER: I had no trouble with headroom. I actually added a measured gallon of water to determine where I needed to add water to my batches. Then I marked it. I did not use it for the initial fermentation.Does this have a 38-400 neck finish? The same as a standard plastic milk jug?BEST ANSWER: I can't answer this question. But, I would like to add that the cap you sell fits a few small glass containers that I have from salad dressings to kombucha bottles that are great for water or juice and fit in my purse.Are these jugs lead-free? Also are they dishwasher safe, if not, why not?BEST ANSWER: I don't know about the lead content, if any, but I do use the dishwasher occasionally. My dishwasher isn't the best about getting out particulate matter in the jugs, so those I end up cleaning by hand.Does this work with 38mm caps? And is this rated to withstand pressure of a fully carbonated beer?BEST ANSWER: The 38MM caps we sell does work with this jug. You can fill this with already carbonated beer no problem.
