5 Gallon Glass Carboy
5 Gallon Glass Carboy, perfect for any Beer, Wine, Mead or Cider Fermentation Project. Takes a #7 Stopper or Universal Carboy Hood. This size is ideal for primary fermentation of a 4.5 gallon batch, or bulk aging (secondary fermentation) of a 5 gallon batch.
Glass carboys are made from 100% glass. These are ideal for primary fermentation of beer, wine, mead and cider, as well as bulk aging for wine, mead and cider. Glass fermenters are a superior material to plastic or PET, and provide a bonus over stainless steel conical fermenters or buckets because you can actually watch the fermentation process take place. This gives you an advantage over stainless steel because you can watch the yeast krausen, monitor your dry hops, and see when all of the yeast and trub has fallen out when crash chilling. Glass carboys also provide an easy way to make an anaerobic, airtight seal with only one small, #7 Stopper opening at the top.
GLASS CARBOYS, IF MISHANDLED, CAN CAUSE DEEP, SERIOUS, DISABLING LACERATIONS! ALWAYS HANDLE WITH CARE AND USE PROPER SAFETY GEAR AND PROCEDURES!
