Airlock 3-Piece Type

$1.49

Product Number: 7010

Availability: In stock

The 3-Piece airlock is the best choice for the primary fermenter, since it comes apart for easy cleaning in the event of a blow-off. Fill to the line with boiled water or sanitizer to create a closed fermenting system that allows CO2 to escape, but does not allow air back in to contaminate your beer or wine.

Perfect for first-time winemaker Review by Skye

I am new to cidermaking and winemaking. I wholeheartedly recommend using the 3-piece airlock. The first batch of hard cider I made, I used the S-type airlock that was included in the kit and had a major blowoff. The S-type was so clogged that it was impossible to clean and had to be replaced. I quickly ordered several of these 3-piece airlocks and they are the best: easy to fill, easy to use, easy to clean. I have no plans to go back to S-type airlocks again.

Easy to clean and a great price Review by missgorefan

So right off the price is nice, love that it comes apart so easily which makes it a cinch to clean. I purchased the number I needed and since parts can and do get lost at the most inconvenient moments... I bought a few extra.
I did see where a few wrote that theirs broke when they went to remove it from the stopper or whatever, I have NOT had that happen yet thankfully... however I can see how it could happen and I do anticipate it happening eventually (especially now that I just wrote it has not happened to me yet), but given the price you really can't go wrong here.

These are inexpensive and work great. I always keep a few on hand as they eventually become disposable.

East to use and very easy to clean because it comes apart in three pieces. Have used many times and works well.

Good product Review by Trev

Very effective tool to ensure the co2 escapes but no oxygen gets in and how can you go wrong for just over a buck. In my opinion better then the s bubble but they both work just fine.

I fill it with Star San just enough to cover the first level of holes. Works great and easy to use and clean.

does the job for a good price Review by Craig

Product Rating:

Does the job well. Pretty easy to clean. I like that you can also use the bottom piece only, and connect a vinyl tube to the top to use as a blowoff for the early, vigorous part of fermentation. This has usually worked well, but unfortunately, the hose often doesn't like to come off afterward. On a few occasions, I haven't been able to remove the hose without breaking the plastic on the airlock piece. But I suppose that's not really their intended use. They're cheap enough that you can buy a few replacements. Tip: If you use the bottom piece for a blowoff, don't put it too far onto the plastic of the airlock's bottom piece.

Easiest airlock to use Review by Huber

Just pour in some star san to cover the holes and leave it alone. I don't like the S locks because they take longer to clean and aren't any better.
