Looks like 6 gal to me. You'll want gallon marks on the carboy anyway, so just add a gallon at a time, and mark the glass with nail polish as you go. The top "ring" below the neck is where the carboy is "full" and whatever your volume is at that point indicates the size of the carboy.

Just wanted to update this thread. I had my first brew day today. I am very happy with how everything went. My beer has been in the primary for about 7 hours now and I am getting lots of airlock activity! I will update again in a few weeks.
