What was another name for face jugs?
The History of Ugly Face Jugs Submitted by: S ydney Luther, Gallery Assistant, a longtime member of the SCC has been recently focusing on a new line of work: face jugs. These jugs have a fascinating history, which adds to the charm of these works of art.
- There are many differing stories concerning the history of these ceramic jugs, known throughout history as ugly jugs, voodoo jugs, devil jugs, or simply face jugs.
- The first account of the history of these jugs is that they were created by African peoples who were enslaved in the United States in the 1800s.
These jugs were found around North Carolina and Northern Georgia, dating back to the 1840s, throughout the Underground Railroad, and in gravesites in areas with high populations of enslaved people. It is said that the daunting faces were meant to scare away the devil and other evil spirits, so that the souls of the departed could go to heaven.
- The creators of these jugs obviously had a strong spiritual connection to them, considering how often they appear in their history.
- Enslaved Africans were often not allowed to have tombstones, and so some theories suggest that these jugs functioned as grave markers because of this.
- Another account of the jugs is in the United States is from people abducted from the Caribbean for the purpose of slavery, where belief in voodoo was common.
The jugs were said to have been used in voodoo ceremony and the style of ceramic vessel was brought to the U.S. by these artists. Another common historical account of these jugs is from the prohibition of alcohol in the United States during the 1920s. Moonshine was stored in ceramic jugs at this time and the frightening faces were created to scare children from drinking the liquid inside the jugs.

Stoneware Jugs: aka Liquor Crocks, Whiskey Jugs & Shoulder Jugs – Stoneware jugs, also referred to as liquor crocks or jugs, whiskey jugs, and shoulder jugs, predate the mason jars and other modern containers that replaced them. While they obviously weren’t used exclusively by any means for the consumption of “spirits”, the image of a mountain man, pioneer, or other early frontier inhabitant taking a drink from a stoneware shoulder jug is certainly an American cliché, if not icon.

Ewer is an older word for a pitcher or jug of any type, though tending to be used for a vase-shaped pitcher, often decorated, with a base and a flaring spout. The word is now unusual in informal English describing ordinary domestic vessels.
A notable ewer is the America’s Cup, which is awarded to the winning team of the America’s Cup sailing regatta match. Plastic pitcher of milk. In modern British English, the only use of “pitcher” is when beer is sold by the pitcher in bars and restaurants, following the American style.

What is a carboy jug?
How to Use a Carboy Carboys are glass jugs, much like water cooler bottles, that brewers use for making beer, wine, hard cider & mead. They come in a range of sizes, from 3 gallon to 6 gallon. A glass carboy does not allow oxygen to pass through and change the beverage inside.
The effects on oxygen on beer, wine, mead and cider, after fermentation is over, can be tasted and smelled. Most brewers and drinkers agree that these are not positive. Carboys will, with careful treatment, be useable for a very long time. Here are some things to know when using a glass carboy in your home brewery.
Using a carboy as a fermenter
Carboys need to be sanitized. (like everything.) A solution of one tablespoon of bleach/1 gallon of water makes a great sanitizer. Carboys will not absorb any bleach aroma and can be filled in advance. I take advantage of a sanitizer filled carboy to sanitize my wine thief/hydrometer. Just stand it up in the carboy, then rinse. A carboy used as a fermenter should have some headspace. A 6 gallon carboy is usually a fermenter for up to 5 gallons of homebrew. You will need some accessories for your carboy:
funnel strainer special brush to clean it handle (install under the lowest bump on the neck) stick-on thermometer a milk crate (handy for moving carboys and keeping them off rough floors, like concrete) blow-off set-up
Be careful not to place a filled carboy on a surface that is not totally clean and smooth. You don’t want to create any pressure points that could crack the glass. You can set the carboy on a flattened piece of cardboard or on a towel/rug. When fermentation is underway, you may not have enough headspace. Foam can potentially clog the stopper/airlock. When that happens enough pressure can build up to crack the carboy. The orange cap in the picture is attached to a 3′ piece of 7/16″ tubing that is submerged in a jug of water. Any foam will exit this way and end of in the jug. When the foaming stops you can leave the blow-off in place or exchange it with a stopper and airlock. Always strain out whole/leaf hops when you ferment in glass. Hops that don’t clog the stopper or blow-off will end up clogging your racking cane. Bummer. A stick on “fermometer” is a great accessory. Place it below the three gallon mark and you can see the temperature as you top it off. You can then change the temperature of the water to hit your target pitching temperature. Keep your beer covered when it is in a clear container. UV light hitting the hop oils with produce an aroma that is unmistakeably “skunky”, A paper bag with a whole cut in the middle of the bottom works well. T-shirts and zip up hoodies are styling too.
Using a carboy for secondary The term secondary fermenter can be a bit of a misnomer. When used in brewing, most, if not all, fermenting should happen in the fermenter. But sometimes there will be some fermentation happening slowly so a carboy with an airlock is the best place for that to happen.
Other benefits, for all beers, are:
Less sediment in the bottom of the bottle Less chance of yeast autolysis occurring, where the poor starving yeast starts to cannibalize the other yeasts cause you aren’t feeding them Better, more consistent carbonation. Sometimes, when fermentation is over, there is still some C02 in the beer that hasn’t yet moved out of the beer and airlock. When you prime a beer that still has some gas in it, you might end up with an overcarbonated brew A head start on conditioning. You brew is “born” on the day it is done fermenting. You will hear us talk about conditioning and whether or not a brew is ready to drink. All beers need time after fermentation is over to mellow and mature. When you bottle directly from the fermenter then the carbonation and the clarifying/settling out will mostly be done in the first two weeks. The beer is ready to drink and you will probably notice the brew tastes better and the head retention will improve during the next 4-6 weeks. If you let your brew have more time in the carboy, the clarifying and conditioning will happen there and when you do bottle or keg, you’ll have more, better conditioned brew. You can schedule bottling or kegging when it is convenient for you. As long as it has had a week or two, bottle when you want.
You should use a carboy for secondary that you can fill up. If you make five gallons of brew, use a five gallon carboy for secondary. You can have it filled with sanitizer ahead of time. I like to rack the sanitizer I use on brewday to fill the carboy that I’ll be using later on. It keeps sanitizer going through my siphoning equipment and doesn’t waste sanitizer. Keep the carboy covered or in a dark place. Light hitting the beer will create an unmistakeable skunky aroma. Don’t forget to check the airlock when you are doing a long term secondary.
: How to Use a Carboy
Why is it called a carboy?
Laboratories store and handle different chemicals in their daily operation. Some are flammable and some are corrosive, while others are completely inert. One key to laboratory safety is keeping using chemical containers that minimize the risk of spills, fires and toxic vapors.
Carboy containers provide these functions. The term “carboy” originated in the 1700s. It derives from an ancient Persian word “Qarabah”, which means large flagon. These vessels were made from glass and covered with papyrus or wicker. In its history, a carboy was also called a demijohn, Today, this term is more associated with wine and spirits.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|Red borg labeled ” SpongeBorg SquarePants ”|
|Standard drinkware||Plastic gallon water jug|
|Commonly used ingredients||
A borg (short for blackout rage gallon ) is a mixed drink made in a plastic gallon jug, containing water, vodka, flavored drink mix such as MiO or Kool-Aid, and sometimes electrolyte mix such as Pedialyte, The drink gained popularity at universities in the United States in the early 2020s, spreading among members of Generation Z on TikTok in late 2022 and early 2023.
Drinkers typically label their borg jug with a nickname, often a pun on the word “borg.” Borgs have been touted as a hangover remedy and a harm reduction strategy, counteracting the effects of alcohol with water and electrolytes, but these claims are not grounded in scientific evidence. The drink’s high alcohol content and convenient packaging also facilitate binge drinking, with a typical recipe calling for a fifth of vodka, equivalent to about 16 drinks.
Officials blamed borg consumption for a mass hospitalization event at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in March 2023.
