Airlocks are another one of those necessary pieces of equipment for every homebrewer. If you ferment in a carboy or bucket this 3 piece airlock is a must! It’s a popular alternative to the triple ripple type of airlock because it can be taken apart and cleaned, and is easy to fill. (However we do sell the triple ripple type (FE371
) in case you are used to that type and would like to stay with it.)
Most homebrewers use these airlocks on standard gravity beers or on second ferments. If your primary fermentation is very active, the foam can climb up to the airlock and clog it. For this reason many brewers use a blow-off tube for the primary ferment. One cool feature of the 3-piece airlock is that 1/2" ID tubing will fit onto the center post for use as a blowoff!
