Subject: Three gallon glass carboys
Date: 1989-01-05 13:56:00 GMT

Several members of our brewing club (Boston Wort Processors) have expressed
interest in three (3) gallon glass carboys. We are looking for a possible
supplier for us to make a large order (around 20 carboys). Can anyone on
the net help us out? We made an order around two years ago, but the
company from which we got the carboys went out of business in the meantime.

Three gallon carboys are great for people who like to experiment and make
several small batches rather than fewer large batches. When I make a small
batch, I start my primary in a 5 gallon carboy, and later transfer to the 3
gallon carboy for secondary fermentation and lagering.

I do my all-grain brewing in small 3 gallon batches. I don't have a
brewpot or a stove large enough to boil 5 gallons of wort. Three gallon
mashes are much easier to control, and the lautering and sparging is
appropriately easier.

I really like using three gallon carboys for brewing, but I need to find a
few more for our club. Can anyone help out?
