Designed to work with our Big Demon 8-Gallon Conical Fermenter.
Bubble, bubble, without toil or trouble using this 3-Piece Airlock. An airlock offers advantages that other airlocks simply can’t. It will show the difference between the inside air pressure and the outside air pressure (a great way to gauge fermenting activity), and it can also prevent “suck back” (a term used for when liquid in the airlock is sucked into the fermenter due to temperature changes). Not to mention watching the bubbles is a great way to pass the time while you’re waiting for your beer to complete fermentation.
This lid gasket is designed to work with our 8-gallon fermenter only! Sanitize everything (inside and out) before using.
2. Adding The Airlock
After you have made your beer and added the yeast. Tighten down the lid, then add the airlock.
3. Filling The Airlock
After the airlock is firmly in place, add water to the fill line(s). Sanitized water or alcohol (like vodka) is preferred. (F.Y.I. if need be, refilling it with regular tap water should be fine).
4. Removing The Airlock
Remove the airlock (and/or loosen your lid) BEFORE opening your tap for any reason. Completely remove the airlock before bottling your beer.
WARNING: ALWAYS REMOVE THE AIRLOCK WHEN OPENING TAP, OTHERWISE LIQUID FROM THE AIRLOCK WILL WIND UP IN YOUR BEER.
