Large BLUE 5 Gallon Mason Jar Patent Nov.1858 Eagle Star with - Etsy

This is this 5 gallon Cates Kosher Dill Pickle jar with the original label still intact. It is a clear glass jar and it is marked Mason's Patent Nov. 30th 1858. It has star on the front, an eagle on the back and a crackle design on the bottom. The jar is in very nice condition with no chips or cracks. There are some scuffs/scratches from age/use. It measures a big 19" to the top of the lid and is approximately 9" in diameter at the bottom. The metal lid is has some rust, holes and deterioration - you could replace it if so desired


Anyway, I said I would keep it short in telling my journey. I like getting right to the point sometimes. I was making so many batches with these small vessels each week and bottling my KT. It became overwhelming, so I had this idea of getting a bigger vessel/fermenter..Duh. I jumped right in to brewing a 5 gallon batch with some 1/2 gallon mason jars for experimental flavors or backup starter. The one 5 gallon vessel soon went to four 5 gallon fermenters within a month and into kegs. Can you tell this hobby became a passion?
