A carboy brush is the best way to clean those hard to reach places in glass jugs, carboys and demijohns. This long nylon brush is tough enough to scrub those stubborn hop resins and fruit pulp yet safe enough for all glass and plastic fermenters.
The angled design allows the carboy brush to completely scrub the bottom of the carboy all the way to the edge. When pulled to the top, the angled head can easily scrub the upper areas where much of the floating debris accumulates. The flexible head can be adjusted for carboys of any shape with a total reach of over 2 1/2 feet!

Choosing A Cork Size:
These bottles can be used with #7 (21mm), #8 (22mm) or #9 (23mm) straight corks from 1.5in (3.8cm) to 1.75in (4.5cm) length. Smaller corks are easy to insert or remove and suited to wines that will be served young. Larger corks provide a tighter seal and should be used for wines that will be aged.
Nomacorc Select series wine corks are high-performance co-extruded closures for long-term aging. They have superior oxygen control, consistent quality and are TCA-free. Nomacorc corks have a color and texture that is consistent with traditional high quality natural cork.
The patented co-extrusion process results in a foamed core covered by an outer skin. The core provides uniform cell size and density allowing for consistent and predictable oxygen permeation. The elastic outer skin ensures that no leakage occurs during bottling or storage. This flexible skin also provides support and protection during the bottling process. 100% Recyclable with other LDPE plastics. Compatible with all types of bottle corkers.
|Design:||Grape and Leaf Cluster|
