Airlock 3-Piece Type

SKU: 7010

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.

Keeps Bad Stuff OUT
Great Little Airlocks. I have used them for years. I do not like the "S" type. These can easily have water/vodka added to them. Do not delay picking them up at this good price.

Dependable
I've never had a problem with these, and they are easy to clean. Easy to use and see whats going on. Plus they seem less fragile than the S type air lock.

Good simple airlock
Works well, keeps O2 out and gives CO2 a place to escape.

Good Airlock
Easiest to clean of the ones I have used, gets the job done and doesn't seem to be flimsy or easily broken.

Works ok but not as well as S-Bubble type
These work ok but I have found the s-bubbler type much easier to use. I have heard some negative comments about this type of airlock "blowing off" at times. If your airlock is blowing off (wine making), then you are transferring to a carboy too fast from primary fermentation. I always leave my wine in open primary (covered with cloth) until specific gravity drops significantly and have never has one of these blow off.

good product for a good price
I've not been making wine very long but I do like the 3 piece airlock. I managed to break the first one while lifting the carboy up on to a table for siphoning. Unfortunately, the airlock caught on a sleeve and snapped off. Luckily the break was low enough to be able to continue using the airlock until I could get another. All in all, the 3 piece airlock holds up very well.

I have like 10 of these
When I started brewing I didn't know about the s-type airlock, so I used these on all my primaries and secondaries. Now I only use these on my primary. I've never had a blow-out, but just in case it happens, these airlocks come apart for easy cleaning. I kinda wish they came in clear colored plastic (at least the two small pieces), because they can be kinda hard to find in a bucket of sanitizer!

Basic and functional
You can easily take apart the airlock and clean it in seconds. This model is great for any of your carboys as well as the lid to your primary fermenting bucket. It is a very simple, basic piece of equipment but also the easiest to clean and use._x000D__x000D_Make sure you have the same number of airlocks as you do fermenting buckets and carboys... you do not want to get stuck filling up your bucket on a brewday only to realize you don't have an airlock handy!

Do you put cover on to ferment
R A on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If by cover, you mean the cap, then yes. It prevents any nasty dirt or such from falling in. It's vented enough to let the gas escape. I've used it for multiple fermentation runs.
