Hey guys, I was curious if any one has seen any glassware like these, and if so, how can I get some?

Yes, if you Google for brouwland (they're in Belgium) and then go to the fermented/demi-john section, you'll see how they normally come i.e. with a plastic carry basket. They have those and some sizes that have a much wider opening which are brilliant for fruit or pulp handling.

Like fatbloke said, they're demijohns. They're what we have here in Europe instead of carboys. They come in 10, 15, 20, 25, 34 liter and larger sizes. They seem to be from Italy. Not sure how available they are in your area.

Here's a 25 liter one in my chest freezer:

Thanks guys! I took a look at them. I'll have to to do the price conversion stuff later, it's early here. It says they deliver world-wide, I just wonder how much it would cost to get some here. I've got carboys and such, but they'd be a nice change.

Well, I'd have thought that shipping would probably make them prohibitively expensive. Because glass is a PITA to ship unless you can sort a container load.

Yeah, no way in hell would I pay to ship giant glass bottles from Europe. They're likely not guaranteed either, so if they're broken in transit, you're screwed. You should ask around homebrew clubs locally. Maybe someone knows where to get them.

LHBSs here are few and far between. That, and when I do something, I go hard. So, maybe I'll pony up for them!

My LHBS sells them and I'm sure plenty of others do too. I've even seen demijohns on Denver Craigslist.
The wine makers typically have them from what I've seen. I wouldn't pay for shipping from Europe, just find a LHBS willing to ship!
