Low Profile Glass Fermenter - Kegco Wide Mouth carboy
« on: April 24, 2017, 10:12:16 PM »
Anybody have any experience with these?

I'm looking for something clear to use as a fermentation vessel in my low profile repurposed beverage fridge, but some of the reviews are kinda scary.  I don't have enough clearance for a normal glass carboy or my Better Bottle, but I'd like to move out of my plastic bucket (which BARELY fits)

I don't, but the reports of the thin and bubbled glass sound awful.  Out of the 92 reviews, I counted 9 breakages.

Think of how many stitches you are going to need if it breaks when you are holding it.

While I have no experience with the product mentioned, Kegco's QA is terrible. I've had issues with just about everything I've bought from them.

No way I would support KC, just my $.02

It appears the tribe has spoken.  I will look elsewhere (meaning probably that I will just buy a nice new bucket)
