Customer Reviews

Broke a carboy on third useThis piece of junk cost me a 5 gal carboy, $200 in spilled wine, and 10 hours of cleanup as the wine seeped under the PVC flooring in our garage. Thought the idea was to protect one's back, not hurt it by heavy labor. I was very lucky I escaped without any major cuts by the glass shrapnels flying everywhere.In my case the handles held up but the issue was with the vertical straps. They move around freely along the horizontal straps. I guess the idea is to accommodate carboys of different sizes but it makes for a flimsy product. The end result for me was that the space between two straps became too large and the carboy slipped through. Obviously, the danger of this happening increases for full carboys.I've been making wine for twenty years now. In that time I broke only one carboy and that was when using this hauler. Needless to say, I'm not happy. Good tools are great but badly designed tools are a waste of time and money. 1I have three of these AWESOME!I have three and they are very handy. They also help keep my temperature probe against the carboys.The price for one and shipping is pretty good.The only drawback here is they are ripping us a new one on multiple orders.I was going to buy three more but when I saw the shipping was multiplied three times that was a deal breaker. Almost $15.00 shipping for three items that weight about as much as a heavy letter? Give me a break!I hate it when retailers stick it to you with shipping. 5Could be heavier-duty, but performs the task.It does what is advertised, but in my opinion it should be heavier duty. The webbing material and stitching create a little anxiety with 6 gallon glass carboys. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for a heavier-duty variant.While the webbing itself should have ample tensile strength, I would prefer heavier guage material and more stitching to compensate for failure points in the webbing created by stitching locations and the small nicks and frays that will inevitably occI wind up carrying the carboy as low as possible, whenever possible. 3Good product but double check everything first.I've got a BigMouth 6.5 gal carboy and this thing does the trick for moving it about a bit more easily. The first one I got was defective. The clasp wouldn't stay closed. It was quickly replaced without difficulty.The replacement now works fine but you should spend a little time getting to know it with an empty carboy first. The most important part is to be certain the buckle is installed correctly. If it's upside down, then it will pull free very easily and smack goes your fermenter. When it's installed correctly it holds well but isn't a lot of extra strap when working with a 6.5 gallon carboy.Like any these harnesses, you want to give it a check before you move the carboy to make sure it's still safe and secure. I haven't done it yet but if you're only using it on one vessel and don't ever need to adjust the size, it's probably worth doing a heavy duty sewing of the strap just for a little extra safety and peace of mind.The reason this review is 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's a good item but it's not like when I put it on I'm like "Wow, that thing is really in there, it's not going anywhere." I'm sure after more successful uses I'll feel more comfortable with it but it isn't of a quality that inspires confidence from the get go; it is what it needs to be to get the job done, but it isn't trying to do anything beyond that. 4Works great until there is any weight in the fermenterDont trust this with your carboy. My attempt to lift this less than 3 feet ended in me losing a carboy, a $50 batch of IIPA, and slicing my toe open. Works great until there is any weight in the fermenter. 1A necessity.If you use a glass carboy, you NEED to get this. Please.Do a quick search on Google Images for Glass Carboy Injury or Glass Carboy Breaking, then prepare to be nauseated. Think about it - you fill these things up with a bunch of warm liquid and then waddle around to put them away, or maybe you use the neck handle that's only designed for when they're empty. Put it down on a pebble, or too hard, or it slips from your hands a little, or maybe it just decides that the wort you put in was a bit too warm and now it wants to stress crack - either way you have to contend with a LOT of very sharp broken glass going all over the place, right next to you and in your arms.Get the carrier strap and you can pick up the carboy MUCH more easily, support it from the bottom and the sides, and keep it away from you in the event it does decide to break. Picking up a full carboy with these straps is a simple task compared to some of the other methods, and is far safer than the neck handle or the barrel-hug approach.For the low cost, save yourself some headache, some backache, and a possible trip to the hospital. 5Does not fit 6 gal. carboy correctlyI originally ordered this carrier for my 6 gallon glass carboy back in 2014. It has performed as I had hoped and I would have given it five stars...however...I just ordered another one and what I received is nothing like the original. It s half the size and looks a lot cheaper (on right in photo). It also doesn t say Brew Hauler on it. I m not sure if this is a knock off or if the quality has gone downhill, but this does not fit my carboy. It s half the height of the jug, so it would be top heavy and unsafe to fill & carry if I tried.Update: I ordered it again, but from a different seller. I was hoping I just got a dud. Nope, I got the same lousy carrier. How disappointing. I returned both for a full refund. 1A must have if you use carboys (glass or PET)I bought one of these because I was tired of lifting 5-6 gallons of wort into my fermentation chamber (swamp cooler setup). I also noticed that even though I use PET carboys, my hands can lose grip and drop the wort everywhere. Worse would be if I dropped it after it fermented and I lost actual beer. Sad.This is a fairly simple design but one person did mention that it would be nice if there was a second belt below the first to keep the straps in place. There is minimum fidgeting that needs to be done but it is just enough to make you think the second belt is a great idea.This is one of those purchases that you may think is silly and not worth even the $10 price tag, but it is. I cannot tell you how much easier it is to move carboys around especially on brew day after I've racked from my brew kettle to my carboy and I have to walk the carboy into the house. I do carry the carboy low still and almost waddle too and from but that is because I read about a strap breaking and I worry. At best, if a strap snaps I assume I'm close enough to the ground where I may save my beer. I don't think the straps are defective and it is possible the reviewer just got a one in a million dud, but you can never be too safe.I had one and ended up getting another as a gift. These also seem to do fine if I leave them submerged in water, which is how I control the temp of my fermentation. I appreciate that there are no metal parts for that reason alone. 4Love it!Bought this Brew Hauler a little while back to aid in moving my heavy, full of beer, glass carboys. I have to say that it works awesome! I usually brew with a friend and it makes transporting the beer from one area to another smooth. We are each able to grab a handle and move the carboy around with ease! Please do yourself a favor on brew day and purchase this, I would be lost without mine :)UPDATE: I was carrying my beer to the basement with my hauler and I thought that I heard something ripping so I set my carboy down. Thank Goodness I did, because one of the handles stitching ripped out and I almost dropped 5 gallons of Hefeweizen all over my deck! Please take the time and inspect yours as well. I decided to sew the handle back on being that I have a sewing machine, and I discovered that all stitching was starting to fail. I restitched everything, and hopefully I will never have a problem with it again. Hopefully the company will notice this fault, and pay closer attention to this.SECOND UPDATE: I contacted the company and was glad to hear that these were manufactured in the gold ol' USA! I told them the story of how my strap tore, I repaired it, and they sent me some seriously AWESOME swag for my time! You cannot go wrong with this company or their product as they will 100% stand behind what they sell! 5Love it, but don't full trust it.So much better than having to lug around a full carboy by hand. I have a 6 gallon that I couldn't imagine moving up to a shelf without this product. I like the look of the carrier too. The handles with the logo on them looks nice and reminds me almost of Grund n's suspenders. As many other people have mentioned, I would put it on before filling the carboy. Unfortunately, I didn't have the luxury and was able to get it one with a mild struggle.The strap to tighten it onto the carboy works well and is easily adjustable.My major concern / worry is about the strength of the straps. I've read a few reviews that they have snapped costing people carboys and more importantly fermented beer. When moving my carboy I try to not carry it more than 6 inches off of the ground until the final lift onto the cabinet. I move mine about 15 feet from the back room to the kitchen counter. I've only used it once, so time will tell.I like that when I am cleaning it I don't have to worry about the strap getting wet or soggy due to the nylon construction. 5
