DetailsThe 6 Gallon PET Plastic Carboy is ideal for secondary fermentation and long term aging beer and wine. When full, it weighs an easily managed 42 pounds and is light as a feather when empty for easy cleaning.
Designed to be strong, scuff resistant, easy to handle, and essentially unbreakable all while providing a taste- and odor-free, BPA-free, DEHP-free, plasticizer-free fermentor. Virtually impermeable to oxygen, the PET Plastic Carboys are extraordinarily easy to wash and sanitize (no brushes necessary). The PET Plastic Carboys are non-absorbing, non-porous, and non-wetting (hydrophobic), so it will not carry over flavors from one batch of wine or beer to the next and it is easier to clean and sanitize than glass or other plastics. The PET Plastic Carboys are the best choice for home winemaking and homebrewing.
The PET Plastic Carboys use a #10 stopper or a Medium Universal Carboy Bung with an airlock. The Better Bottle O-Ring closure is not compatible with the PET Plastic Carboys.
**Do not use hot water over 120 degrees with PET Plastic Carboys.

3 months agoGreat alternative to glassThe 6 gal size is perfect to minimize air-space in secondary for a full sized wine kit. Medium universal stopper is a great fit. The reduced weight from glass is great, but you'll want a harness for carrying or moving a full bottle since the sides are flexible.December 8, 2018Purchased

4 months agoGreat CarboyThis is my second plastic Carboy. I like these over the glass ones due to their lighter weight. They are made of a sturdy plastic. I have no issues with cleaning and so far they have not discolored at all from the original clear.
One caution however, if you get the accessory carboy handle that attaches to the neck it is not recommended that you carry the full carboy by this handle.Red or white?April 7, 2018Purchased
