I use it to hold filtered water
The glass jug works well, feels sturdy, is easy to carry, and didn't have any harsh chemical smells.

Perfect price
I wanted a couple of smaller carboys for my smaller batches of mead, I searched all over both internet and local suppliers, what they wanted for a very similar product was kinda ridiculous. Then I found Midwest... problem solved. _x000D_These do the trick and are so affordable, I ended up buying 4 and will buy more as needed. Midwest is the only place I go to buy my mead and wine making supplies... Great prices, point system is nice, the customer service is reliable, friendly and they respond quickly. highly recommend.

This was exactly what I needed as a fermentation vessel for my mead. Arrived quickly, and in perfect condition.

Good for small batches
I use these for small experiments for both beer and wine making. Glass is good because it wont scratch, and I use the Poly Seal caps to seal them shut.

Can't have enough
I mainly use the 1 gallon jugs for fruit wine creations, but they also are very handy for when you're thinking of brewing up a batch of beer that is a bit off the beaten path.

Good for small experiments
I use the 1 gallon jugs for aging small batches of fruit wines I experiment with. For small batches glass is better than plastic because the risk of breaking is less, and the weight is less of an issue, and glass is much easier to clean._x000D_

Perfect for wine
I make small batches of wine and the jugs are the right size for aging. I degass and seal them up for a year or however long it takes.

Does a lid come with it?
A shopper on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, the lid or stopper needs to be purchased separately. You can use a #6 stopper or a 38mm screw caps. Cheers!
How big is mouth opening?
A shopper on Dec 20, 2016
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?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these one gallon jugs are US-made. They are from Arkansas Glass. - Mike W, Midwest Supplies
Will a 6.5 stopper work with this jug?
Austin P on Jun 28, 2017
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?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
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?
Robert G on Nov 7, 2016
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?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2018
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?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2018
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?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 38MM caps we sell does work with this jug. You can fill this with already carbonated beer no problem.
