This 5-gallon glass carboy is the perfect size for a secondary fermentation. You’ll want your batch to age for a long time and this bad boy leaves minimal head space that is ideal for a 5-gallon batch. Customers come back again and again for these glass carboys because our glass is heavy-duty, doesn't hold odors or scratch like plastic, and won’t break down over time. Plus, it’s fun to watch the fermentation take place inside.

  • 5-gallon size is ideal for secondary fermentations
  • Perfect for beer or wine
  • Easy to clean
  • Uses a 6.5 stopper or a universal carboy bung (sold separately)

Caution: This fermentor is a large hand-formed glass item that can be easily damaged if not used with proper care and handling. It may have variations in shape and thickness, and will show the normal bubbling characteristics of hand-formed glass. Extreme changes in temperature or sudden contact with hard surfaces may cause glass to crack. Handle with care–we strongly recommend using the Brew Hauler for increased safety and ease of handling.

five gallon carboy
I like to make some things "wines and ciders" in slightly smaller batches than six and bigger than three and these fit that bill.

Good, sturdy
These are great for secondaries. I like the clear glass when clarifying wine and beer. Also nice for batch-aging wine before blending or further processing.

The carboy arrived on the exact date that was stated. It is very sturdy, probably due to the ribbing, and it is full of 5 gallons of wine. It is also pleasing to the eye.

Simple and Effective
I like the glass, narrow necked style the best of all the carboys. Yes they're heavier and more fragile than plastic, and harder to clean than a big-mouth. But once you fill and plug them, it's the simplest and most reliable protection from oxygen and contamination that you can get.

A good secondary
I still wish I had one with a larger mouth, but it's hard to beat glass as a good thing to ferment in, and the lesser amount of head-space means my beer has a better flavor.

if i have a 5 gallon carboy, but this makes 1 gallon of cider, would fermenting it inside the 5g affect the taste?

A 1 gallon kit in a 5 gallon carboy would be a little too much space. I would recommend looking at our Little Big Mouth Bubbler or a 1 gallon jug for fermentation.
Can real hot (boiling) water be poured directly into the carboy?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ohh nooo!!! These carboys are not tempered. You would be creating a bomb. If you must use extremely hot water you'll need a scientific Pyrex type vessel so prepare to open your wallet.
What is the height of the 5 gallon glass carboy?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 20.5" in height.
Can this bottle be used in a water dispenser?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, that is not its intended purpose. Cheers!
When empty, how much does this 5-gallon glass carboy weigh?
