We recommend using this vessel for kombucha and soda. The Demijohn comes with the basket, as pictured. The stopper does not seal fully. Wide-mouth demi-johns can also be used for wild fermentation beers. Once fermentation slows or stops, siphoning to a fully sealed carboy with airlock and stopper is highly recommended.
Mouth opening measures 4.5" wide.
Caution: This fermentor is a large hand-formed glass item that can be easily damaged if not used with proper care and handling. It may have variations in shape and thickness, and will show the normal bubbling characteristics of hand-formed glass. Extreme changes in temperature or sudden contact with hard surfaces may cause glass to crack. Handle with care. Do not pick up the demi-john using the basket when full.
