This 6.5-gallon glass carboy is one of our best glass carboys that keep customers coming back again and again. A staple for your beer- or wine-making equipment, the glass is heavy-duty, doesn’t hold odors or scratch like plastic, and won’t break down over time. Six gallons is an ideal size for a primary fermentation of a 5-gallon batch of wine or beer. And the glass allows you to watch the fermentation process.

  • 6.5-gallon size is ideal for primary fermentations
  • Perfect for beer or wine
  • Easy to clean
  • Uses a #7 stopper or 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.

Top notch carboy!
It has a slimmer or narrower profile that I’m used to compared to my other car boys. This makes it nice as I can nest it in other items for storage. It also has a substantial amount of ribbing, which I presume reinforces the glass and strengthens it.

Essential equipment.
While I usually brew 5 gallon batches, this 6.5 gallon carboy gives more than ample headroom for fermentation. I like the traditional metal handles better than the harnesses, but on these guys I use both for extra safety.

Cracked base
I would love to give this 4 stars or better, but after washing it and prepping it for its first brew I noticed a crack in the concave portion of the carboy. It does not appear to go through the thickness of the glass but still certainly something to be concerned about.

Good Carboy at a Good Price
What can I say? It's a glass carboy. But the price is right. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it's a bit taller than my other carboys, which for me created a storage issue and is just a touch too tall for my siphon.

The extra half gallon head space helps when fermenting
The extra half gallon is a godsend for wine makers who ferment in carboys. You don't lose anything to blowoffs. It's too large for aging, bit perfect for fermenting.

Bigger is better
The extra head space really helps out when the Krausen forms. _x000D_Its a solidly built carboy that will last.

The extra head space is welcome
As a primary fermentor, this is good for 6 gallon wine kits becaus eof teh extra head space._x000D_I still secondary in a 6 gallon carboy.

Doesn't scratch like a better bottle
I like fermenting in glass so that I can see how the fermentation is going and whether the yeast dropped clear without opening up the lid to a bucket. 6 Gallon BB's are fine but they don't quite have enough head space for fermenting 5.25-5.5 gallons of wort I make each batch, and I usually need blowoff tubes and lose a fair bit of beer that way._x000D__x000D_Make sure you get a brewhauler to help carry this thing around. Glass is great for fermenting, easier to clean and can last a really long time, but if your hands are wet while handleing one, you are playing with a ticking time bomb. Also a brewhauler (or even a milk crate) makes it easier to handle and the bottom doesn't scratch when you move it around

Is there a 5 gallon line?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. I measured out 5 gallons and then used a sharpie.
