I now own 5 of these wide mouth carboy s and I love them. But, there is an annoying circumstance with the silicone seal. When putting the top on the seal can easily fall into the must and fall to the bottom. I know because this happed twice to me. How I figured it out was the air locks were not bubbling like the others and I removed the tops to the two in question and found the seals at the bottom of the jars and had to fish them out. Now, again I want to go on record I still really like these carboys but the top and seal should be redesigned wider so that the seal doesn’t fall in. So, just make darn sure as you reinstall the tops each time to watch out for the seal so that you get it right .
The Kegco 4.775 gallon wide moth glass carboy is the perfect fermentation container for 3 gallon batches. This carboy has a wide mouth allowing you to reach inside, making adding and removing ingredients as well as cleaning much easier.

The lid features a removable cap in a recessed area that can double as an air lock or hold a #3 stopper for your own airlock. The carboy also includes carrying straps that make it easier than ever to transport the carboy, especially when it's full and heavy. This carboy is constructed of glass that does not hold odors after fermentation and does not easily scratch making them easy to clean and sanitize. The glass vessel is airtight and will not break down over time. If you treat your Kegco 4.755 gallon carboy with care, it can provide decades of great performance.
Wide Mouth Makes Cleaning Easier Than Ever
The Kegco carboy is constructed of glass meaning it is less likely to get scratches and scrapes the way a plastic carboy or brewing bucket would. The wide opening at the top of the carboy allows you to reach your entire arm inside ensuring the no bacteria is left behind when being cleaned. Not only does the wide mouth opening make it easy to clean, it allows you to easily add and remove ingredients during the fermentation process.
Install Your Own Air Lock
When using this jar as a fermenter, gas will be released from your brew. 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. 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.
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 making keeping track of multiple batches easier than ever! To use this feature, simply turn the inner dial to the month and the outer dial to the day. Say goodbye to the days of sticking a piece of tape on the side with a date 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.
