2.5 Gallon Glass Jar/Barrel

This is a 2.5 gallon glass jar, with a handle and lid.

The jar is perfect for making vinegar, and the price is decent. Don't expect the lid to be airtight though, because it isn't, and the handle is not meant to be used when the jar is full. It can only be used when is empty.

Otherwise, the jar is pretty sturdy, and it will not break easily.

Ball Wide-Mouth Mason Jars with Lids and Bands

These jars have 1 quart volume, with a wide mouth. The wide mouth is particularly useful because it  makes the jars easy to work with. You can use it for a variety of fermentation projects, like making yougurt, making kefir, (water and milk kefir), pickles, both sour pickles and vinegar based pickles. 
The lids have a great seal, ensuring there is no air exchange during fermentation, and during the preserving period, if that's what you need. The jars also have measurment markings with both American and metric volume.
