Plastic MAXI airlock, transparent, for carboys, for wine, for liquor fermentation
The MAXI airlock made of high quality PVC material is a product that simply needs to be included in the accessories of every enthusiast of home production of liquor. The airlock is characterised by high strength, has been approved for contact with food and features a certificate of the Polish National Institute of Hygiene (PZH). Its design features large bubbles that ensure slower evaporation of water during fermentation. The airlock is adjusted to the opening featured on the rubber stoppers for carboys, as well as on jars, and fermentation containers. Using our airlock ensures a successful batch.
An airlock filled with water is used in the fermentation process in order to protect the batch content against oxygenation, while at the same time enabling regular emission of carbon dioxide produced in the process taking place. Thanks to the moving water gauge we can notice the changing intensity of the fermentation process - from the turbulent stage (intensive bubbling) to the stationary one. Water evaporation is natural, which is why it is necessary to remember to top it up in the airlock. Additionally, the airlock protects the batch against fruit flies that might get to the inside and which may, in turn, introduce acetate bacteria that change ethanol into acetic acid.
NOTE: in case of limited possibility to check the water level in the airlock, it can be filled with an oily liquid that evaporates to a lesser degree.
