Details

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.

Good Primary
This 6.5 gallon is great for a primary fermenting carboy. As long as you take care of them after using and during moving them the should last a very long time. Better than plastic in my opinion.

Great Primary Fermenter
Love this as a primary fermenter. Can really see whats happening, though my last hefe was still to active, and needed a blowoff tube.

Great Carboy, good price
Bought this as my first primary fermenter and it served its purpose - I really liked being able to watch the yeast in action. However, its a little hard to take an OG reading without a baster or wine thief, so I that's when I switched to the 6.5 gallon plastic primary. Still use this as either a secondary or even a primary now that I have a wine thief. Great quality and cleans up nicely with PBW.

Solid Product
This carboy just feels substantial and well made. I'm very happy with it and I'm sure it will last for many brewing sessions to come.

A ggreat fermentor
Its perfect for fermenting wine and beer. It can be cleaned better than plastic and it absolutely air tight except at the bung. It also has plenty of head space so blowoffs are rare. I use a brew hauler whenever I move it.

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

The extra head space is welcome

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 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.
