    It is a demijohn or carboy.

    That is for Fermenting water , yeast and sugar to let off CO2 ,

    Often used by home brewers or cannabis growers,

    The top piece is a bubbler that you fill half with water allowing you to see the bubbles of CO2 leaving the bottle.

    Happy Saturday :D

    The top piece is an air lock to prevent pressure build-up.

    Its actually a urine specimen collector. Once you fill it up and shine sunlight through it you get all kinds of beautiful rainbows reflected onto walls/ceilings/floors.

    I remember making wine once... you could be right.

    My sister made excellent wine (her elderberry wine was like wonderfully tasting rocket fuel) but apparently it's not a family gift.

    I find that throwing demijohns from a high place very satisfying.
