  • A great addition to your any of our PET carboys is our FerMonster ™ Strainer MiniMesh (sold separately) that will allow you to reduce the head space if required filling it up for example with glass marbles also works great to infuse your wine/beer during long term fermentations.

NOTE: We do not recommend to lift the carboy from the side when it is full. To lift it, place one hand on the bottom and the other on the neck.

NOTE: We do not recommend that you drill a hole on the PET Carboys or FerMonsters™, as this must be done with the right equipment and right expertise. Doing this may crack your carboy and become unusable.
