Looking for styrofoam containers for carboys
« on: September 09, 2011, 10:06:03 AM »
I was given some used 6.5 gal carboys (a decade ago) that were contained in a two piece styrofoam container.  I imgine it is what they originally were shipped in. I think that they are really handy- never worry about breaking the carboy when setting it down.  Over the years, with water and wort spilling down the sides they have become uncleanable (and down right nasty).  Does anyone know of a place where I could get a new set?

it might be worth a shot calling some places that sell the carboys like william's, northern brewer, etc etc if they dont have them maybe they can point you in the right direction.

If that fails, you could probably build your own with some duct tape and a sheet of foam insulation from home depot.
