Airlock S-Bubble type

SKU: 7008

This S-bubble airlock is the preferred choice for secondary fermenters, as it allows you to monitor the pressure in the fermenter.

Fill to line with boiled water or sanitizer to create a closed system, which allows CO2 to escape, but doesn't allow air back in to contaminate your wine or beer.

3 piece worked better for me
5 batches went just fine with the 3 piece, but when I bought a second carboy I thought I would try one of these. Broke after I finished my very first batch with this style. I know that the seal between the plastic and the rubber stopper was dry but didn't think this would happen.

Works well, Good design
Unbeatable airlock for the money. It is hard plastic so it is much safer than the glass alternative. Cleans up relatively easy so its shape. Also speaking of shape, as long as you fill it up to the correct level you shouldn't have any problems sucking the liquid in or out of the lock. While it doesn't slide in and out of the bung plugs as easy as the glass lock, the safety factor is worth it.

Best Airlock Ever
I have both the 3 piece and S style airlocks and I love the S style airlock. The main reason being that you can very easily see when primary or secondary is under pressure (like it should be). It's also easy for counting bubbles. The only downside is cleaning it takes a bit more time.

I use plastic wrap for the first 24 hours then use this. great.

good airlock for the money
Airlock works but I still prefer the 3 piece airlocks as long as you don't loose one of the pieces. But overall this airlock works fine and is cheap

S-Bubble type Airlock - I prefer over the three piece
This is a great, and very cheap, airlock for your brewing needs._x000D__x000D_I started brewing with the three piece airlocks - then one day one was stuck in the fermentation lid and I pulled on it and it broke right off. I was left without an airlock so I had to rig something up. On this note - GET A FEW EXTRAS!!!! They are cheap and it's nice to have them on hand for the unexpected._x000D__x000D_After that broke I decided to try the S-Bubble type airlock and decided a MUCH prefer these. Less there to deal with. Not as many parts and work just as good if not better._x000D__x000D_Get these

Excellent
This was my third airlock I purchased from MidWest. I use it regularly to make cider and special wines. I have no problem with this airlock

Works
You really can't go wrong when buying an airlock. For most purposes, a 3-piece or S will work just fine. I have read that S will evaporate slower so is more suited for long term fermentations, but I have had equal luck with the 3 pieces not evaporating fast. These are so cheap, no reason not to pick up a few.

The best value
If you want a simple, inexpensive airlock that won't allow the liquid to back up into your brew, this is it.

Hi. Do I need to keep the red cap on the s lock throughout the primary fermentation?
E L on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Shouldn’t have to, but the red cap will keep or lessen the amount of moisture from the a rapid or aggressive fermentation from blowing the fluid from the air lock.

Thanks for asking.
All the water in my airlock went into one section instead of half in both. Is this ok?
H A on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that just means that there is positive pressure from the CO2 being produced by fermentation.
