The Kegco 7 Gallon Wide Mouth Glass Carboy the ideal fermentation vessel! You can brew up to 6 gallons without having to worry about the kraeusen clogging up your airlock on big beers. The jar's 6" wide opening makes it easy to reach inside the jar to add and remove ingredients or clean every inch of the inner surface. The smooth glass surface does not scratch easily, so these jars are easy to sanitize and do not harbor bad odors or flavors. They can provide decades of great performance if you handle them with care because they do not break down like plastic carboys or buckets.

The plastic lid creates an airtight seal on the jar and you can install an airlock in the recessed area on the lid to release gasses during fermentation. By installing the included breather cap and filling the recessed area with sanitizer, gas will bubble out without letting in oxygen or other contaminants. Transportation of the glass container is uncomplicated thanks to the nylon strap handles that are included.

Available in 3 Sizes - 4.755, 5.5 and 7 Gallon

Wide Mouth Makes Cleaning Easier Than Ever

The glass jar is less likely to get scratched up than a plastic carboy or bucket, so these jars are already easy to clean, but the wide mouth makes it even more convenient than a normal carboy. Stick your whole arm inside the vessel to reach all of the surface area with a cleaning cloth, ensuring bacteria has no place to hide.


Install Your Own Air Lock

When using this jar as a fermenter, gas will be released from your brew. If the vessel were sealed airtight, the added gas could cause the jar to explode if not vented properly, but if there is not a good seal, your brew could be come oxidized. The removable cap on the lid allows you to install a drilled #3 rubber stopper with your own air lock so the gas can vent without allowing in oxygen.


Built-in Air Lock

The lid has a recessed area with a removable cap that can be replaced with a breather cap to use as an air lock. The breather cap allows gas to escape from the container during fermentation and having it in a recessed area allows you to fill it with sanitizer so that the released gas can bubble out, but harmful oxygen and impurities cannot get in and contaminate your brew.


Adjustable Dial To Set Brew Date

The lid features an adjustable dial that allows you to set the date that you begin fermentation, so if you have multiple batches going at the same time in different jars, it's easy to keep track of when each one started! Simply turn the inner dial to the month and the outer dial to the day. No more sticking a piece of tape on the side with a date scribbled on it!


Durable Straps Make Carrying Easy

If you've ever tried picking up a slippery jar that's filled with a few gallons of liquid, you'll appreciate the convenience and safety of having a strong woven nylon strap to lift and carry the jar from place to place. The straps fit snugly around the jar and criss-cross the bottom to evenly support the weight, but can be quickly slid off the jar for cleaning.

  • Capacity: 7 US Gallon Max Capacity (6 Gallon to top line before bottle curves)
  • Material: Glass
  • Plastic screw on lid with recessed cap
  • Breather cap can be used as an airlock or replaced with a #3 drilled stopper and an airlock
  • Strong nylon woven strap for easy carrying
  • Dimensions: 17.5"H x 12"W
  • Weight: 12.5 lbs

Disclaimer - These carboys are made of glass and should be handled with extreme care. We have been able to use both hot and cold liquids in them, but they are not impervious to thermal shock and can shatter when exposed to large, sudden changes in temperature. Use caution.

Note - The breather cap is now clear plastic, not black plastic

wide mouth carboys

used as both primary and secondary fermenters for making wine. they are exactly as advertised. Easy to handle and clean. they seal as they are supposed to. although I do tape them up as I do with any of my carboys, small necked ones also. I have the 3,5,and 7 gallon ones. expanding operation and will order more. several friends have converted to using them

great secondary fermenter!

Great Price! Great Quality! I usually use glass fermenters for a secondary fermenter which helps refine my beers. plastics fermenters I use only as a primary, because they can eventually absorb odors and since they're only holding beer for a little under a week sometimes, depending on the gravity readings. Secondary glass fermenters do not impart odors nor flavors that effect which is presently in the carboy. Most fermenters do not come with a carrying strap, and I love the brew date reminder dial! Great Idea!


Make a great pickle jar too!

TL;DR - You won't regret getting a couple of these in your brewing lineup.

It's a heavy/thick walled sucker with a very stout opening. It will be easy to clean by hand, and should sit well on the shelf with the others. Not having the longer neck makes it lower profile and less blow off concern for 6 gallon batches.

The whole date dial on top is neat but only going to be useful for very active brewers.

When I need more space, I'll be buying more of these.


A Must Fermenter

Great product. Enough room to get your arm inside for cleaning.Strap handles are a real bonus


Should be a good fermentor.

Bought 2 of these to replace my trusty old buckets. One was broken when I received it, and they shipped out another immediately. Am using my first one right now (brewed my "Highgarden Belgian-Style Ale" yesterday, & it's bubbling away this morning). The carrying sling seems a little flimsy, so I'm using one of my other heavier carriers. I also cut a 12" piece of high density foam to put under the carboy, inside the sling, to help protect against breakage from setting it down too hard. Should be easy to clean, and fits in my 5.5CF chest freezer/fermenter.
