DetailsWe recommend this larger-capacity 6-gallon carboy for use as a secondary fermenter, especially when brewing lagers or high-gravity beers. It can also be used as a primary fermenter for 3-gallon batches of wine. Glass carboys are great for fermenting because they never scratch or break down over time. Plus, glass does not hold odor, which could impact taste. This carboy uses a #6.5 stopper or a small universal carboy bung.
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.

6 months ago6 Gal. carboysThe 6 gal. carboys I received are a GREAT Quality at a reasonable cost. These carboys will definitely be used once we get our Strawberry out of the primary containers.July 12, 2018Purchased
5 months ago6 gal carboyI love it and so easy to use. I just wish the wine would work faster as the waiting is hard.March 30, 2018Purchased
8 months ago6 gallon carboyI was skeptical that this would arrive in one piece, well it did. Who ever packaged it for shipping should be given a day off with pay. Would not hesitate buying another one if needed , was cheaper than local when there is a promotion and such!!!
VERY HAPPYOctober 21, 2017Purchased
1 year agoThe carboys are clear, no flaws. I used a No. 6.5 stopper not a 7. 7's don't fit very far into the neck.October 12, 2017Purchased
1 year agoSuper CarboyIt was packed so well I almost couldn't get it out of its wrapping without destroying the boxes. It is one of the best carboys I have had. I have had several over the years as a chemist but this is the best constructed. Those in the past were smooth sided and hard to handle. This one, at least, has some griping places but I will be using the handle I purchased with it.May 2, 2017Purchased
1 year agoThe six gallon carboy is a must for beer. I always brew slightly over 5 gallons if I'm going to transfer to secondary. This allows for head space since beer is always so active during fermentation. Midwest Always has best products. I Only use them for all my Brewing needs.April 21, 2017Purchased
