An essential piece of home brewing equipment is your Carboy's. Fermentation is an extremely important part of your home brewing process. Typically you will transfer the brew from your fermenting bucket into your carboy and store it in a cool, dark place for the time specific to your brew recipe. This glass carboy is made from a durable, solid glass material and will last a lifetime if properly cared for. Sanitation is a vital step in your brewing process, so keeping your carboy cleaned and sanitized when not in use is a must! Note: 5 Gallon Carboys are ideal for wine making as well as smaller batches of brew.
