Rubber Stopper Dimensions
(Dimensions subject to commercial
7/18/2015 – Hello, I have some old wine decanters that I need to find some sort of lid or cap for, so I can use them at my wedding....They are from "Giumarra Vineyards" and the outer dimension of the neck is about 2-3/8 inches.....can you help me?Thanks! Sandra
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Perhaps it looks like this one?https://www.etsy.com/listing/235031662/vintage-giumarra-vinyards-wine-decanterIf so, it isn't a screw cap. It might be better to use a (solid)rubber stopper on the INside. There is a chart associated with the rubber stoppers for accurate dimensions. If we don't have a solid stopper to fit, a "stopper-stopper" . . .
2/16/2015 – I just bought a 1 gallon jug from you. I need stoppers for the 3 piece airlock. What size stoppers should I buy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Those jugs require a #6 stopper.
11/6/2012 – What are the dimensions for the opening of the 5 gallon glass jug?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The opening is approximately 1.5". It accepts either a #6.5 stopper, or a universal stopper. Links to those products are shown below:
4/11/2012 – what is the inside diameter of the mouth of this 6 gallon carboy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Approximately 1.25"It accepts a #6.5 stopper or alternatively a "universal" stopper (see links below)
3/19/2012 – Does this rubber stopper supports temperatures around 140 degrees?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, 140 deg F is not a problem.
8/6/2010 – Is the one-gallon jug made of glass or plastic? What size stopper fits in the opening?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Our 1 gallon jugs are made of glass, and accept a #6.5 stopper. See product links below.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
1/3/2010 – I have a glass 5gal carboy the opening is 2and 1/16" what size stopper should I use? because I do not know what a #6,6.5 or 7 would be in inches.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: From that information, a #11 stopper is probably just right. It measures 2 13/64" at the top, and 1 7/8" at the bottom. For a complete rundown on stopper sizes, go to that product. (Link is below.) and then click on the product name (Rubber Stoppers). It will display a chart of stopper sizes and inches.
9/17/2009 – Do you sell and ship 6.5 or 7 gal. glass carboys with caps? If so, I want two of them. Price and shipping?If you don't sell them, can you recomment a vendor who does?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If/when we can get them. The factory (in Mexico) that made 6.5 gallon glass carboys shut down, so they are becoming hard to find.Not sure what you mean by a "cap". We do have stoppers and other "caps"...Shipping depends on weight and distance to you. By adding the product(s) to your online shopping cart, and giving your address, you . . .
9/12/2009 – If I was to order this Deluxe Kit, how long from the time I start, until I am drinking my first home brew (scottish ale)? What do you recommend getting in addition to this kit, to brew maybe 3 different beers at once, or is that an option with 1 kit?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A reasonable estimate for that is 3 to 4 weeks from cooking to drinking.In order to brew 3 beers simultaneously, you would need more equipment, primarily fermenters and airlocks/stoppers. A good way to this at a reasonable cost is to start a new batch about every 10 days. As the first batch comes out of the primary fermenter (it gets transferred . . .
8/29/2009 – Do you have a #10.5 rubber stopper without a hole? Or a #11? I'm looking for a bung to put on my barrel for cleaning, and I can't seem to get a "solid" option for those two stoppers.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Not usually. It's not a common size. We DO have another product that may work for you tho, it's a stopper plug that fills the drilled hole.Here is a link to that product:
8/7/2009 – I was interested in the 10 or 20 gallon fermenters but was wondering if you might be able to install spigot and lid hole with bubbler and stopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can install the plastic primary spigot without a problem. Due to the loose fitting lid on both of these fermenters, there is no need to use an airlock. It allows enough CO2 to escape on it's own. If you prefer, we can install an airlock and stopper, but as I say, you may not get much bubbling through it.
7/21/2009 – I've gotta say, i love your site, whoever is the webmaster/designer deserves a pat on the back.(1) If i was to just buy a 3 gallon bottle (the kind you buy at a grocery store to dispense water at home) would i have to worry about flavors from one batch carrying over to another batch?(2) What size stopper do the one gallon jugs take? . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Thank you. We work hard on our website, and it's nice to hear that it shows!1) Probably not. As long as it's food grade, it should be good unless you decide to make pickles or saurkraut in it or something silly like that. We can't speak for all plastic water jugs, of course. 3 gallons isn't very big, either. With the foaming that occurs . . .
7/2/2009 – With the 11 Gal plastic carboy, do any of the carboy caps fit it? Which size bung fits it if not?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, I'm sorry , the carboy caps do not fit this size opening. The #10 bung works well. Put the airlock into the bung before putting it into the fermenter. I like the Intermediate size Buon Vino "Universal" stopper tool. Maybe is a better fit. Here is a link to that product
10/15/2008 – Is it possible to get a #9 rubber stopper without a hole? I need one without a hole. If not do you know where to refer me to get one without a hole?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, sorry. We DO have a product called C000, which is a rubber "plug" that goes into the standard stopper holes, making it leakproof. If that will work for you, just ask for one in the "Customer Comments" section at checkout and we'll add one for you.
7/25/2008 – I dont exactly have a "carboy". what i do have is a glass jar, greatly resembling a carboy that is roughly 5 gallons in size. I wanted to get this carboy cap, and use my jar as a secondary, but im not sure if this will fit airtight. The measurements of the opening are(ID-1in and OD-2in). Will this, 2-spout cap, fit airtight on my jar?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: To get an "airtight fit" requires a pretty good match. I wouldn't count on that, in the case of an unusual jar size. I would use a stopper that fits on the inside. It SOUNDS like you are after a #5.5 rubber stopper. Measure carefully, and go to the stopper product below.There is a chart there showing the appropriate stopper for different . . .
7/14/2008 – is the hole in the middle the same size for every size stopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, it is.
7/11/2008 – I"m trying to find some large-mouth balloons,I use for making wine; They fit over gallon containers; Would appreciate any help
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The "balloon wine" recipe has been around for at least 40 years (I did this in high-school), but I should tell you it's a BAD idea. You WANT the CO2 to escape!It is much better to use an airlock and stopper. The CO2 will be released, and it does not allow air or bacteria to get in. For a couple of bucks, it improves your wine and is reusable!By . . .
2/28/2008 – I would like to brew using mason jars. I think the jars are 2.5" in diameter, but I was never very good at math. Do you think the #12 stopper or the #13 stopper would be the one to use?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: If the opening is 2.5" inside diameter (across the opening, on the inside), then a #13 should do it.
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
12/6/2007 – 3 part-er:1. A distant friend claims he leaves the yeast bodies in the brew for a "b vitamin" kick. I found his beer to "high energy" and was wondering if this makes straining unnessecary? (what are your feelings on leaving in the yeast bodies)2. One friend here that I'll share the cost of the kit with and probably brew with has the . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1. There is certainly no harm in a little extra yeast. It's high in vitamin B.Straining is usually ineffective anyway. To eliminate yeast cells it is better to just let it settle to the bottom of your fermenter, and then siphon off the good, clear beer.2. We like food grade plastic for a primary fermenter because it's inexpensive, . . .
10/2/2007 – I purchased a 1000ml flask thinking it would take the universal stopper. Well I guess the universe is too big. what stopper do I need? Is it the 8.5? I can't find this info in your catalog or your web site.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: THe #8 stopper should work just fine once the airlock is inserted.
6/14/2007 – I have a demijon 14 gals glass, what size stopper do I need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They use a #11 stopper.
5/17/2007 – As soon as I receive my order from ya'll I will be attempting my first batch of Mead. Many of the recipes I am looking at making are for 5 gallons of Mead which means I will need close to 5 gallons of water. My questions is: Would one of those 5 gallon water bottles like the kind use in water coolers work as a carboy? The neck of the jugs . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The will WORK but they are not ideal, especially for mead.We like to use a plastic "bucket" type fermenter for the primary fermentation, and then after the activity subsides, then siphon it to a glass carboy. This allows much of the sediment and such to remain in the bucket, but for the secondary fermentation to take place in glass. Glass . . .
1/7/2007 – What is the best way to remove a stopper? Do you recommend the stoppers that cannot be pushed into the carboy?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: After your carboy is empty, try using a metal coat hanger to "fish" it out.Usually, this happens when you put the stopper in and THEN insert the airlock. Try inserting the airlock into the stopper and THEN put into the carboy. The insertion of the airlock into the stopper hole expands the stopper somewhat, so that it doesn't go too far . . .
11/16/2006 – I accidentally pushed too hard on my rubber stopper and it fell into my 5 gallon carboy. I figured what the heck and just left it in their while the beer settled (secondary fermentor) and it didn't harm the beer at all.Now I want my stopper out of there though. I tried various things for over an hour... any hints on how to get one . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Far from it. Lots of people have done this. The best "tool" for retrieving that pesky cork is probably a wire coat hanger, bent over, and lots of fishing.
11/2/2006 – What is the best of cleaning these stoppers? I have several and they have all picked up odors I can't clean off of them.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Just regular cleaning and sanitizing is all I do. Have never noticed an "off" odor...
8/21/2006 – What is the size of the stopper that fits in the plastic bucket that comes with your kit?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It is a #2 stopper, but if you need a different size, we can drill it for you. Just let us know.
5/5/2006 – I ordered a 5 Gallon Glass Carboy with stopper. The stopper is to small. Please send a larger stopper.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Often, people think the stopper is too small, but it really isn't. Try putting the airlock thru the stopper first, and THEN inserting it into the carboy. The airlock causes the stopper to expand slightly, and it seals the opening better.If this doesn't work, we are happy to send you another stopper. Just let us know!
3/1/2006 – Do you sell a two-hole rubber stopper?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No; sorry.
2/14/2006 – DO YOU NEED TO BUY A SEPERATE RUBBER STOPPER FOR THE RED TOP AIR LOCK OR DOES IT COME WITH ONE?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you will need to buy a stopper sized to the hole you are using it in. We don't know what that is, but if you click on the Rubber Stopper name, there is a chart for selecting the right size for your fermenter.
12/24/2005 – I am using a water jugs for secondary fermentation (size of 1 gallon milk jugs but had clean water insdie when bought) what size cap do i need to use for a fermenter?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Beats me. I assume you mean stopper. It would be best to measure the opening and select the size of stopper you need based on the opening size. There is a table shown in the details of this product
8/28/2005 – What is the diameter of the holes?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1/4". They are perfect for an airlock.
3/31/2005 – I have 5 gallon carboys which size do they take?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Normally, a #6.5 stopper is the one. There is some variation between carboys, however, some are made in Mexico, and some are from Italy.This (universal) stopper will work for either type.
3/15/2005 – I would like to filter hops, fruit etc. while I siphon into my fermenter. Would any of your screens work well when attached to a siphon hose? Do you have any other suggestions outside of a tapped kettle connected to a bazooka screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The real problem will be getting the stuff thru your siphon hose. If you are willing to pour the wort:In our Brewing Accessories category we have a variety of straining bags that might well serve this purpose.There are also funnels with straining screens that can be used.
10/17/2004 – I have a one standard one gallon size use wine jug what size rubber stopper will fit this jug?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are many different sized "one gallon jugs", and from our experience, nothing is "standard". The ones we sell take a #6.5 stopper, but it is best to measure your opening, and select the proper stopper based on the chart we have for that item (Rubber Stoppers). Click on the name to see the size chart.
9/26/2004 – I have a one gallon glass jug (same kind that you sell with the finger hole at the top) I bought the wrong size of plug and am wondering if you could tell me the correct size I need.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are LOTS of different openings for jugs of that style. You need to measure the opening. Here is a link to a chart for determining the stopper size you need (click on name)
8/13/2004 – When u are fermenting something in a container with a heat source underneath can the container be sealed or do u run the problem or to much pressure building up and eventually cracking or shattering your container if so what can be done about this?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's a bad idea to seal up ANY vessel when it has actively fermenting liquid in it. Fermentation gives off CO2 gas, and pressure will build up. You need to use a pressure release, like an airlock and stopper sized to your opening.. Here is a link to one
12/29/2003 – are these stoppers, (#2), made of white rubber?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: More of a tan color, actually.
11/14/2003 – Do you have 18mm rubber stoppers? I need 1 with a hole and 1 without a hole
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Stoppers are actually tapered, wider at the top, and narrower at the bottom. If you mean for an 18mm hole, then yes...the #2 stopper is what you need. (20mm top, and 16mm on the bottom.link to them below:
11/13/2003 – I have a 5 gal. plastic water carboy I will be using,what size stopper with a hole for an airlock do I need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There are several different manufacturers of plastic carboys. It would be best to measure the opening, and then select the correct stopper for that opening.
10/30/2003 – I have some 7/8's holes in my fermenter lid, No. 3 stoppers are too small, No. 5's are too large. You don't seem to list a No. 4 stopper, which I think would be just right. Now what do I do? Where can I obtain No. 4 stoppers?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The #3 may seem too small, but once you put an airlock thru the hole, it should be about right (the stopper actually expands a little).Alternatively, you could open up the hole(s) to accomodate a larger stopper, I suppose. Sorry, I don't know of a source for #4 stoppers.
9/12/2003 – my bottle has a one and a half inch inside dia.what size stopper do i need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A #8 stopper should work just fine.
8/20/2003 – I just bought 2 6 gallon plastic carboys. I need to order the rubbber stopers and airlock. Can you recommend??
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need a #11 stopper for the 6 gallon plastic carboy.
8/2/2003 – I have a rubber stopper that looks like it is size 10 1/2 according to your chart, the bottom measures 1 3/4, the top measures approx. 2 5 1/8" and the hole is 3/8". this particular stopper measures 1 5/8" from top to bottom. I would like to order twenty with a hole in them and twenty with no hole, if possible. Can you please quote me a price . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: They run $3.20 each. Shipping cost depends on where you live.
