I have one.

I know that this is an old thread, but this is the one that I have:

I'm not sure if they still make them, and the price is like double what I paid from a different store, but if you really want a 1.5 gal carboy (mine is closer to 1.75 gal). it takes a #9.5 stopper, and is nice and heavy wit hthick walls.

enjoy

I also use beer growlers (1/2 gallon) and beer bottles for storing my "top up" wine. Since you're using an airlock, pressure generated isn't an issue.

I've never seen a 1.5 or 2 gallon fermenter, although they must exist.
I think I am going to go buy a 6 liter jug of Carlo Rossi and dump it down my drain so I have a 6 quart primary.

I am confused if I use something ie wine bottle whatever as fermenter why would it be under pressure, airlock should relieve at near 0 pressure. help me understand all the no wine bottle post

No issue...just a misunderstanding. Of course there is a minute chance the carboy clogs during fermentation leading to pressure but I've only heard of that like once or twice happening.

I was very lucky to find a couple of 2gallon pyrex carboys used to make saline, i have to check the store next time I go back home to see if I can find any more.

They are great, id recommend looking for them.

Saw a couple little 1.5 and 2 gallon jars at Wally World for pretty cheap. Not sure you'd be able to use an airlock, but you don't really need one anyway, just set the lid on top or use foil or something. I was thinking they'd make pretty good fermenters for starters
