I need one for a pet bottle

Never used one before. Seems like it will be better for frothy ferments than what I was doing before.

Is there an erlenmeyer flask that this fits on nicely?
Kent Erickson on Feb 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the FE500 carboy hood will fit snugly on the 2000 and 3000 mL Erlenmeyer flasks.

Not what I expected
Does not seal well for using CO2 to transfer from carboy to keg.

Does not fit
Disappointed to see it does not fit. Too inexpensive an item to return so I guess I'm stuck. You might try calling customer service for diameter size before ordering.

New hood does not fit properly
My older hood fit perfectly on better bottles. The new hood does not make an airtight seal with the better bottle, and the thermowell port is so tight that it is nearly impossible to get a thermowell in without keg lube and so far impossible to remove once inserted. The rubber compound on this one seems to be much stiffer than on my older carboy hood.

Does not fit snugly
Does not fit snugly, air leaks around the seal. Compared to my 4-years old hood, the plastic seems to be less flexible.

Snug fit and good quality.
Saw quite a few reviews on other sites about fitment issues. The ones I received from here for extremely snuggly. Almost enough to lift an empty carboy from the cap alone. Very satisfied with fitment.

Nice product but a airlock with tubing as a blow off seems to be more secure.
Seemed to work ok but found air does leak around the seal. I wrapped package tape around the bottom of the cap and affixed it to the bottle.

Works great with thermowell and blow off tube
Used with thermowell and blow off tube. Excellent

Excellent for Blow Off Tubes
I have been looking for a better blow off solution for my Better Bottle fermenters and this does the job. Fits perfectly and doesn't come off like the stoppers do when they are wet with sanitizer and being pulled with a blow off hose.

Love these for blow offs
These are great to have a small blow off on, then easily switch to airlock when fermentation dies down. It is nice not having to swap out to a bung when changing over to the airlock.

Would love to see something along this design with bigger tubing to be used for the blow off though.
