Anyone have suggestions on where to find a good deal on new glass carboys. Looking to buy 15-20. Thanks for your help!

Where are you located? I just picked up 4 at the Reading Glass and China store in Lancaster, PA for $14.99 each. They also have a store, in, you guessed it, Reading. I don't know if they ship though.

I'm in San Diego, and I see them for sale on craigslist pretty often. You could try that for your city.

I'd call some of the Better Bottle dealers and ask for a special price based on your quantity. Shipping is not bad as they are very light. You can't go wrong with Better Bottles. You back will thank you and you feet will too if you ever drop one on a toe.

Best deal I've seen on BB's is brewbyu.com. $17 for the 5 and $20 for the 6. Shipping was equally reasonable.

Maybe, but I think he's interested in brand new ones and not used ones.

I would suggest talking to the owner of your LHBS and seeing if he could cut you a deal on them since you are looking to buy so many of them.

Friend wife was just in Lancaster....dangit....next time. Where is that place located? Do you have an addy for it? $15 is pretty darn good, considering most folks have to have them shipped.

Here's their official website, they have stores in Lancaster and Reading, plus some others in DE, NH, NC, and MD.

I can confirm that they have 5 gallon glass carboys at the Reading store. It's located at the VF Factory Outlet.

PS - This store is great for homebrewing supplies of all types, not just carboys. They have bottles sometimes, glassware for serving, various utensils, mason jars for yeast washing, etc. Also I bought a 5 gallon stainless steel pot there for like $15 and it's very good quality.
