Can the Party Pig® be used as a primary fermenter?

Yes, the Party Pig® bottle can be used to ferment a 2-1/2 gallon batch of beer. Simply use a #13 rubber stopper with a fermentation lock and place the bottle upright in a bottle filling support.

Once fermentation is complete, the beer can be placed in a clean container while the bottle is cleaned in preparation for "Pigging" ; i.e., transferring your beer back into the bottle, inserting the Pressure Pouch, adding the priming sugar, attaching the valve and activating the Pressure Pouch.
