I am using this for my secondary fermentation process, as well as an 2 month aging container. At this stage you want the container as full as you can get it to prevent oxidation of your wine/beer

Works very well. The estimated mouth opening was incorrect. But it is great

I'm ordering a 3 gallon and a 5 gallon and wondering if they are both lead free. They do not say Italian glass.Also need to know which stopper is best for these bottles? #6 OR #7?
April 29, 2020
Response from MoreFlavor
Both of these sizes of carboy are made with 100% lead-free glass. We have tested and confirmed that ourselves as well. The stoppers we like the best for these are the #7 (FE440) or Universal Stoppers (FE494). Thank you for shopping with us.

Its a (car)BOY!
Works perfectly for my secondary. I don't use it for all brews, but I have started using it more often for clarity.

I have several of these now, but started off with one in my beginners kit. After 17 years, I consider this great for secondary fermentations. Just don't drop em.

5 Gal Carboy..
Using this Carboy for my estate Zinfandel, so it stands out among the rest of the pack of 6.5 Gal Carboys I also have...this is by far the most handsome looking carboy I have....and it is glass.

Worked great
Performed my first secondary fermentation in the carboy last month and everything turned out great. Great product for a great price!

Great carboy for long extended aging

Perfect Home Fermenter
While most suggest leaving headspace (using a 6 gallon carboy for a 5 gallon batch), I fill my 5 gallon carboy right up to the 5 gallon line and put drops of foam reducer in. With a 1.070 and up beer I might need a blow off hose, otherwise, never had a problem.
