just received my order from midwest and my Better Bottle carboy, has a precut hole in the side toward the bottom. what the hell!?! i bought this with the brewing starter kit, and didnt expect there to be a hole in the side for a valve. there's only one valve included in the kit and my understanding was it is meant for the 6.5 gal bucket.


im confused. anybody else have this happen?

There is a ported version. It takes a valve that is specifically made for it. It also needs a tool to install it. If you think you might want the valve you might try to get them to supply it for free in lieu of a different better bottle. They may go for it since it would cost less to sent the valve than a new bottle.
