6 Gallon Glass Carboy   ($39.99)

* Required Fields

Price as configured: $0.00



We 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.

Good buy on sale.
Bought while on sale and was very happy to discover that the carboy that I received was made in Italy. I have heard/read a lot of complaints recently about some suppliers selling carboys produced in China. If you need carboys, these are the ones to buy.

Very nice to have 6 gallon carboy for 5 gallon batches of beer. Allows lots of room for foam and works great with universal carboy bung. I accidentally dropped a Pyrex bowl right on top of my carboy. Pyrex shattered. Carboy unscratched.

Italian is my kind of carboy
I'm Italian, this carboy is Italian...we go together._x000D__x000D_I'm actually surprised, the shape of this is a little taller than the one I received with my starter kit a while back. I thought that one was also 6 gallons but maybe I'm wrong._x000D__x000D_It's a carboy, it does what it should. I like the idea that glass is inert. Sure the better bottles are lighter, they don't shatter into a million pieces and are technically just as good. Still they feel so temporary, and I worry about having their material degrade after awhile. With glass, it should be fine! As long as I don't make caustic soda that is (it's joke...caustic soda oxidizes glass).

A must have for second stage fermentation
The glass is durable and better made than better bottles. A must have for second stage fermentation or for dry hopping. The larger size still has same size spout as 5gal carboys but extra room is a bonus.

Double Duty!
There is no question that you WILL need a 6 gallon carboy if you are going to make wine... But while you are taking a break from wine you can use your 6 gallon carboy for beer. These glass carboys are a little heavy, but they are durable. Cleaning has never been a challenge as long as you use your carboy brush. _x000D__x000D_I recommend that you purchase a carboy handle with this product. It will help you transport the carboy more freely. _x000D__x000D_Lastly, it is always a good thing to have an extra carboy sitting around. It allows you to have a spontaneous brewday!

I love glass because it won't scratch so there are no worries there. It's also great to watch fermentation without having to snap off the lid of a bucket. Can be a bit heavy and awkward to carry but that's not a problem here.

Good addition
Great product at a good price. Packaged very well, and arrived quickly and in one piece. This was my first time using glass for primary, and it was very exciting to watch the fermentation take place instead of hoping everything was OK in your bucket. Plus, I always feel more confident about my ability to sanitize glass over plastic. Now I can ferment wine as well without transferring odors. Thanks!
