When transparency or reduced gas permeability are important, this 6 Gallon PET plastic carboy kit is the best answer. Made from 100% pure food grade PET resin, the product contains no plasticizers. A 4 inch (100mm) wide-mouth opening provides easy access for cleaning, sanitizing and filling. Convenient for the storage (and optional dispensing) of aqueous solutions or for fermentation. The carboy features smooth internal and external sides that prevent yeast or bacteria from adhering to the product walls. The lid hole is 4.3 cm (1.7 inch) in diameter. Solid lids are also available individually so you can customize your lid or drill multiple holes for filling or supplying. Call to order replacement lids, part# DL-405564-0010.
