Plastic Carboys & Buckets

In addition to glass, we offer a plastic 3, 5 and 6 gallon plastic carboys, as well as 6 gallon plastic buckets. The carboys' plastic is not your usual plastic! These are made out of special polyethylene terephthalate copolymer (PET) plastic and are BPA-free, DEHP-free, and plasticizer-free. This means:
  • The carboy is very strong (it will not break if dropped when full of liquid!)
  • The buckets are sturdy, easy to clean (careful not to scratch them!), and work great as PBW or Star San buckets as well
  • Taste and odor-free, they will not absorb or impart any color or odors.
  • Essentially impermeable to oxygen
  • Light weight
  • This special PET formula is "hydrophobic" (non-wetting), which means it is extremely easy to clean
Note: While safe to use with any of the usual sanitizers (Star-SanSani-CleanPBW, and SO2, PET plastic should not be heated above 125 F (52 C).
