I was not disappointed!
This carboy is big, built solid, Cheap, and shipped for FREE. Also, the super saver shipping was insane on this order. Was on my door step <72 hours later. Amazing.
8/2011 Update - Just ordered another one. Since I have been brewing so much wine, I needed another 6 gallon carboy. I started to panic since this deal wasn't available from Amazon for a couple of months. It went to an Amazon seller plus tax that equalled about $60 with shipping. Amazon finally restocked it at $30 + an additional discount with the subscription service. I jumped on it and bought another. It's not quite the quality of the last, but it is Italian and way cheaper than anywhere else. It was a miracle, however, the way it was packed that it arrived unbroken. Best deal out there for the amature.
The only negative input I have is on quality control with the products themselves. One of the two carboys I received has a "stone" in the glass -- it appears to be a clump of raw material that didn't melt completely like the rest of the bottle. It's located on the outside vertical wall toward the bottom. I did some testing to see if it went all the way through pouring in a quantity of black coffee and seeing if it dyed the stone. It appears to be smooth on the inside, but it will cause me some anxiety. The other had a small bubble in the glass and I'm not sure if this is normal or if these are the "second quality" carboys. Perhaps that's why these are cheaper...
Overall I'm happy with them and looking forward to the larger batches that they enable. I've got 5.5 gallons of Amber Wheat fermenting in one right now and the krausen reached the blowoff tube, I wouldn't go for more liquid than than in these carboys.
About the packaging: First of all, the carboy was wrapped in one sheet of the smallest and thinnest bubble wrap produced. It was placed inside a very flimsy cardboard box, which was placed inside a much larger flimsy cardboard box. There was literally one piece of packing paper between the two boxes in some sort of attempt to cushion the smaller box. The word "Fragile" was not written anywhere on the outer box. This has to be hands down the most poorly packaged item I have ever ordered from Amazon. Also, after looking at the cross-section of the broken carboy, I feel confident that the $30 deals are from Paklab's "B" stock. while the mouth of the carboy looks very thick and heavy, it is misleading of the thickness for the rest of the carboy. Where it was broken in the center, the wall thickness was no more than 1/16".
I contacted Amazon immediately when my order displayed that it was not refundable (no refund in this case would be truly unacceptable, and would have cost Amazon my business), and Amazon was actually very helpful. They notified me that Paklab listed this item as out of stock, so they refunded my order immediately and told me to order again when it was available and they would provide free one day shipping.Read more ›

Best glass carboys you can buy. Solid materials and easy to cleanPublished 7 months ago by Elias Quintanilla
Does what it is suppose to. I bought this several years ago for 25 bux and free shipping. I can't believe its 56 dollars as I write this.Published 16 months ago by bob
The 23 liters is great because it provides some headspace for doing 5 gallon homebrew. The glass is pretty thick. It has held up well so far.Published on January 3, 2014 by JOSUE
this is 6 gal so used for winemaking very good as primary for 5 gal batch, then you move into a 5 gal and has some for topping off.Published on July 13, 2013 by Tecayehuatzin
This is exactly what it says it is, nothing to complain about at all. I will say that it is pretty durable as I have not been that gentle with it and it hasn't shown any signs of... Read morePublished on May 11, 2013 by Ryan Brady
