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)

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.
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.
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.
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.
Been wanting to use this for my main fermenter, bought it and am not disappointed. Worked beautifully
