DetailsTo use the Carboy Cap: Push a racking cane through the center tube, place on the top of your carboy, blow into the other tube, and a siphon is easily started. May also be used for blow-off when fermenting. Attach a length of 3/8" ID tubing to the hood, and run the tubing into a bucket of water. When used this way, the carboy cap takes the place of an airlock.
Note: This item is only compatible with glass carboys in 3, 5, 6 or non-acid 6.5 gallon sizes.

3 months agoGood StuffI picked up one of these to convert a 5 gallon water bottle I had on hand. Saved me the cost of purchasing a carboy, the Racking cane fits perfect as did the vapor lock. I will buy this product again to outfit the other two 5 gallon bottles I have in storage.February 3, 2017Purchased
1 year agoRethinking this oneIt leaked. Had a pin hole in top which I fixed with a hot poker. Also had to put several rubber bands around circumference to seal completely.February 3, 2017Purchased
1 year agoMakes siphoning a lot easierUsing a racking cane, I use a quick blast of CO2 to get the siphon going rather than blowing into the tube.January 29, 2014HandycapI know this isn't supposed to be used with the better bottle,but I got one & it fits snugly. I put the airlock in the center tube for one week oaking,etc. Working just fine so far on my 6G BB.November 26, 2013Helps out a lot when transferingMakes racking fast an easy, just insert your cane and blow in the other hole and the siphoning starts.November 17, 2013Sweet!These caps make it super easy to siphon without an expensive auto-siphon. I'm confident in the seal they make on the top of the carboy. A bit tight with the Better Bottles, but it still works.October 14, 2013Basic equipment for carboy usersIf you use glass carboys then you should get this. Its so easy to start a siphon, and you don't even need an auto siphon. You can save money that way, and get something more durable. Its also good for dealing with blow offs, which can be a problem with limited head space.October 13, 2013Reduces risk of aerationI found this cap to be a nice upgrade when siphoning beer from the carboy compared to an autosiphon. The latter almost always starts to leak air into the beer stream half way through, but with the cap I don't have to worry about that anymore._x000D_And by the way, I've tried using the cap on Better Bottle and it worked just fine.September 23, 2013Very useful for rackingI attached a tube and filter to the offset tube and blow into it and the beer flows through the siphon up the center tube into the bottling bucket. Al very easy and it's easy to sanitize the cap.September 16, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 9 answersWill this fit a 6 gallon Bubbler plastic carboy?BEST ANSWER: I think the bubbler OD on the opening is just about the same size as the glass carboy so it should fit. I also use a clamp on mine to keep it tight for making sour beers and adding a CO2 blanket to the carboy.Will this fit on a 5 gallon plaster water jug? Like the ones you use in a water dispenser?BEST ANSWER: I really have no idea, I use mine on glass bottles and not plaster bottles, or plastic.Can you attach an airlock to this instead of a blow off tube?BEST ANSWER: Yes, I do. Much easier to take on and off than the other types and it stays upright when you set it down with the airlock while testing.
