I have four 6.5g carboys and none of them have threads. All were made in Italy. I've actually never seen a 5, 6 or 6.5g glass carboy with threads...

Cheers!

Homebrew HQ in Dallas has had a bin of them on clearance for as long as I have been brewing..$1.99.

I'm sure you could get them to ship them for cheap.

I have like 6 of them. Sorry no extras.

Thank's tealio! I contacted HQ in Dallas and they shipped me 5 screw on caps for $20.00. Not bad considering this was the only place I could find them.

I think the threaded carboys originally contained hazardous chemicals. They had to be sealed up better than just a rubber stopper in chemical labs...

Homebrew HQ in Dallas no longer has any in stock. To the douche who called in and bought the rest of the remaining stock, go suck it. I only wanted 3.
