After my last brush died, I decided to give this brush a try. Before I had the simple wire jobs, with about 5 inches of bristles at the very end. I have had this for a year, used it about a dozen times to clean 5 and 6.5 gallon glass carboys.

Pros:
- Stiffer then other brushes I have used, better for cleaning that stuck on kraeusen.
- Handle at top is more ergonomic then a metal loop.
- Foam at the end is better for cleaning then bristles

Cons:
- The bottom 90 degree is too short for 6.5 gallon glass carboy, it kinda works but is not ideal. I realize this is the 5 gallon brush so this isn't a complaint, just a note.
- Brush, while stiffer then most, could still be stiffer.

Overall, this is a good (better then most) brush. A slightly larger and stiffer model would be worthy of 5 stars.

Update 12/2015:
Brush is still rocking after three years! Still wish it was sized for a 6.5 gallon carboy.

I struggled with the brushes that came with my first brewing kit for years now. I finally gave up and looked around for a nice brush and finally decided on this one. I am extremely pleased with how this brush performs.

It is heavy duty through and through, the metal is thick and I can really muscle it to scrub those grooves on the sides of my glass carboys. The bristles all the way from top to bottom help to get the gunk out of the neck.

The real meat of this product though is the heavy duty handle and the scrubber pad on the bottom. I can really get into those cracks and crevasses on the sides, bottoms and necks of my carboys which is all I really need from a carboy brush.

We had green mold growing on the inside of our 5 gallon bottles when we bought this, and it cleaned everything out instantly. Inserts into the bottle easily, and reaches wherever you need to clean. Great product!

I refill my own water bottles for our water bubbler at home through a purified water vending machine near our local grocery store. After 3 refills, I can usually see green algae in the bottle... a little disconcerting to be frank.

This guy makes cleaning the bottles a snap. Just fill with a little tap water... get it in there and get all the nasty green stuff off, and you're set to go.

I have a 5 gallon water jug that had developed a great deal of algae on the sides. Even using bleach and soap some residue remained behind on the sides of the bottle. While the algae don't really hurt the water quality and some might argue they actually improve it, the bleach which I suspect leaves a slight residue probably is not as good for you. Nonetheless this brush allowed me to remove the residue, however the horizontal piece that hits the side wall of my 5 gallon water jug does not hit it very strongly. Since my algae come off easily this is not a problem, but if you have something that requires more serious force than a soft wipe, then this will not work. There is also one place this brush DOES NOT get and that is the handle which also has algae in it. The handle of the jug or carboy is hollow in many water containers that have such handles and there is DEFINITELY algae residue there too. The only way to clean out the handle is to get a MORE flimsy flexible brush that can be bent to fit into that smaller space.

I have 36 carboys that were very stained with red wine and had washed 2 of them previously to purchasing this tool. Those 2 washings took a long time and a lot of muscle with an awkward brush. I was able to completely finish washing the remaining 34 carboys with this brush and the carboys look like new.

Does not work well for the sides or bottom. Good for the top only. The metal core has too much give/bends too much to scrub hard. A pressure washer and some soap works better from my experience. It would be better if it had a kink in it and was more stiff so you could stick the brush in and scrub the entire bottle at the same time.

I have a huge, old 6 gallon glass carboy that used to fill me with fear and dread when I had to clean it out. This brush work amazingly well. You do have to work for it, but there wasn't a single spot of gunk inside that I couldn't reach. Well worth the money.
