DetailsPurpose-designed from head to toe, Big Mouth Plastic features improved strength and durability through a decreased base diameter, punted bottom and 3” thick anti-flex ribs. Equipped with a taller body and smaller footprint, Big Mouth Plastic is ultra-storeable, fitting easily inside a standard bucket to take up less precious brewing space. Constructed from food-grade PET, Big Mouth Plastic features gallon graduation marks for instant volume measurement, plus a punted bottom to efficiently settle out yeast and promote crystal-clear finished fermentations. And, of course, its revolutionary wide mouth eliminates glugging and enables hands-on cleaning for a faster, cleaner clean. Finally, get your hands wet.
The new Big Mouth Universal Lid (included) fits all Big Mouth Bubbler® Fermentors, and has ribbed silicone rings ensure a completely air-tight seal. Upgrade to a dual-port lid plate for continuous thermowell monitoring in one port to sustain constant ideal fermentation temperatures and take gravity readings without ever removing the lid.
Earth-conscious design. We have thoroughly planned out every last feature of this innovative product, right down to it’s physical construction. After untold amounts of research into the properties of PET plastic, we fanatically chose to make the Big Mouth Bubbler® with as little plastic as possible while still maintaining a high degree of structural integrity and brute strength. What does this all mean? It means that the impact to our planet Earth is as minimal as possible. We call this a win-win situation. Check out the Plastic Big Mouth Bubbler® for yourself. You will never go back to a traditional style carboy again.
Important Note: Do not fill any Plastic Big Mouth Bubbler® fermenters with very hot liquid - temp should not exceed 140 degrees Farenheit (60 celcius)
You will also need a Small Universal Carboy Bung (not Included) - drilled or solid.
The Carboy Dryer is compatible with the Big Mouth Bubbler® when used in an inverted position.

3.5 / 5.017 ReviewsGreat productLove the big mouth. Used as a primary fermenter and the blow off doesn't rise above the neck of the bottle.December 20, 2015WorthlessDon't waste your money. The lid does not seal properly and cannot stand up to the pressure of a primary fermentation even while using a blow off tube. I just wasted an entire brew day and all the ingredients because of this horrible horrible waste of money. I wish I could send the manufacturer a bill for all my brewing materials. DO NOT BUY!August 29, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesSorry to hear about an issue. You beer should be fine in most cases. But satisfaction guaranteed. Customer service will reach out to you to help!November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesGood item - Watch the bungThis carboy performed great once I figured out that a SMALL Universal Bung was the way to go. I had fitted it with a large universal bung and was losing the seal every 3-5 days. I'd take it apart, re-sanitize everything, put it back together and it would work great--for 3-5 days. Then it would lose the seal again. The problem was in the bung. If you switch to a small or even a medium bung, sanitize it and the lid well, and then put the bung into the hole BEFORE mounting the lid on the carboy, you can get a really good fit that'll hold the seal for weeks, probably even months. I bottled from it tonight and there is absolutely NO "plastic taste" from the item.July 17, 2014Will not sealThis thing sucks. The sealing design is poor, and the lid will not properly seal to the chamber. I am very disappointed that I purchased two of these, and I wish I could switch to their glass version which contains a proper seal.April 14, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesCasey,
Thank you for your review! I'm sorry you are having trouble with our plastic bubblers. The universal lid with the silicone seal will fit our plastic bubblers as well as the glass. This might be an easy fix if you want the same kind of seal as our glass big mouths but the ease of plastic.
Cheers!November 2, 2016Midwest Suppliesbad new lid designThe plastic container itself works very well as a fermentor or secondary vessel. The new lid design is very poor. It slowly pops out of the BMBubbler top and leaves wort exposed. If you push it back in, it will suck in the sanitizer of the airlock, and eventually pops out again. Need to redesing it again, it needs the blue screw ring back to the design, combined with the new lid with the silicone rings. I think that would work lick a charm.October 14, 2016December 30, 2015A must haveThis is a must have piece of equipment for anyone into homebrew. Quality build, and very easy to clean. Recommend getting the carrying strap to help with moving when full.February 8, 2016It just makes sense, easyIt just makes sense, easy cleaningMarch 26, 2016Worth every pennyAfter reading lots of reviews about shattered glass carboys, I decided to give these a try. I'll never go back. Lighter, easier to move around, and MUCH easier to clean. _x000D__x000D_If I had a complaint, it's that the plastic lid doesn't seem to snugly hold my universal carboy bung quite as tightly as I would like it too. That is literally the only negative I have with it.May 14, 2014My Favorite FermenterI have purchased 3 of these now and absolutely love them. The wider opening makes it soo much easier to clean and to transfer into/out of it. I was constantly running into issues with my glass carboy where the funnel would create a seal and prevent any more wort from transferring, and I never run into that problem with these. They are also much lighter and do not impart any flavor into the beer.August 8, 2015
