A demijohn or carboy is an important vessel for fermentations. This demijohn holds 4.5 litres or 1 gallon of liquid and comes with a bored rubber bung and airlock.
Essential to the wine maker a demijohn is required for racking and conditioning the wine which often takes place over the period of 3 – 6 months. As a demijohn is made from glass there is no chance of air contacting the wine inside which can occur if you are ageing your home brew in plastic vessels. Glass is also much easier to sanitise and resistant to scratches which can harbour spoilage organisms which can easily be picked up in PET fermenting vessels.
Each demijohn comes with a bung and airlock so you are ready to rack beer or wine into them straight away. Comes with extra protective packaging to ensure safe carriage.
