I have one, but it does not have parallel sides. It cost me £32!

Where did you get yours from Orfy?

Local HBS,

Stockport homebrew being one that does mail order, I'm not sure if any'll mail Glass Carboys though.

These do.

Cheers for that Orfy! They're quite close to me (about an hour or so up the A34).

They seem a bit steep on some stuff. The grain especially at £33 for 25kg.
Other stuff seems reasonable though.

Just bottled 15g. Have 25g going in secondaries. Just brewed up 15 gallons and put to primary. One of the 5g batches in secorndary is just about ready to bottle. Brewing like mad and utilizing every bit of my equipment trying to gain back from my holiday losses. Planning to reuse my yeast from these batches and save a few bucks on some future brews.

Only one right now but soon to be four. I think I mentioned in another post that my wife's grandfather recently quit making homemade wine. He said he'd sell me his 10 gallon SS pot for $30 and three 5 gal. carboys for $10 each. I haven't had a chance to see what else he has but I'll bet he's got a lot of other nick-nacks I can score on the cheap.

AHU
