Description

Silicone bungs offer a number of advantages over traditional rubber or even wood bungs. They are more durable, grippier and tighter fitting, and won't stain or absorb wine odors over time.

When the two-piece is set to the open position, the bung acts as an airlock and allows the release of CO2 while maintaining a seal against oxygen coming in. This makes the bung ideal for alcoholic or malolactic fermentation. When fermentation is over and you no longer want the bung to "breath" out, you just push the center cap into the bung to create a firm seal and the FE489 becomes a solid stopper!


This size bung is designed to fit a most barrels under 30 gal, including the 6.1gal Vadai, and our plastic carboys. We always recommend measuring your barrel's bung hole prior to purchasing. Dimensions are 1 7/8" tapering down to 1 1/2".

Need a small bung for barrels whose bung hole is to small for standard bung

This was recommended where I bought my barrel

I have used these silicone bangs previously and they are excellent for my small 12 gallon barrels as well as my variable volume tanks. I always seem to need more on hand.

very disapointed
This product claims to be able to let pressure out and prevent air from entering. There is no way that could work with the gouges in the edge of the "bowl lip" and the rough mold seam on the cone section. this is a sound idea just no attention to detail I will be returning two of these. I will stick with the flap style breathable silicone bung from now on.
