Hey, it’s the holiday time and what homebrewer doesn’t put a few pieces of homebrewing equipment on their list?
I have been eyeing a Better Bottle Carboy for a while. Here’s a picture of it:
I probably will still use a bucket for primary fermentation, but for beers that need to be conditioned I will transfer the beer into this vessel. This carboy is made of plastic so it’s lighter and easier to clean than glass. It’s relatively inexpensive too…around 24 bucks.
For twice the money, I could ask for the same carboy but one with a spigot on the bottom of it. Here a picture of what I mean:
The question: Is the spigot really worth twice the money?
