Sorry for the repeat question, I know I've seen this answered before but it's not coming up in any of my searches...

Where is the 5 gallon mark on a 5 gallon carboy?
Where is the 5 gallon mark on a 6.5 gallon carboy?
Where is the 6.5 gallon mak on a 6.5 gallon carboy?

Thanks,
chris.

There are no lines on the glass itself. Measure it out and mark them for your reference.

I'll measure them out when they're empty but right now they're all filled with wort -- it's a nice problem to have...

Just wondered if someone could give me an eyeball approximation of where the fill lines should be so I can confirm that I didn't over/under top-off. I don't know how much evaporates in my boil, so I tend to approximate my top-off.

I remember seeing a post once where someone posted a picture with arrows pointing to the right spots, but I can't find that anymore...

Thanks,
chris.

In the 5 gallon carboy, there's an indentation right where it starts to curve at the top. That's pretty much where the 5 gal. mark is.
