If you are drawn to traditional brewing or you enjoy a simple setup, you will want to have a glass carboy for fermenting or aging your homebrew. They are made of thick, sturdy glass which is impervious to oxygen. They do not scratch, which makes them easy to keep clean, and they're transparent so you can see what’s going on inside. This carboy will provide you with an enjoyable brewing experience for years to come.
Cheap carboy, made in China, the casting is so bad I'm afraid to put it under vacuum. Does not compare to the Italian made glass carboys which typically sell for about the same price. This was a surprise coming from Morewine, since most of the products I've purchased have been good quality.
Received this carboy in a well packed box. I was worried at first that it would come in one piece but glass is super thick. 6 gallon size is great for that extra space for 5 gallon batches. During violent fermentation that extra space keeps things easier to maintain.
I have had this carboy for a long time, maybe 10 years, and have run a lot of beer through it. However, eventually the beerstone has built up in the channels to the point I don't feel like I can really get it clean.
This product has lasted me years. Does not scratch and easy to clean. I would prefer the 6.5 gallon for brewing beer so it has room to rise when fermenting. This is good for wine too. Just be careful because this is glass.
