XL Extra Large 3 Piece Airlock – Holds 50% More Liquid – $1.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Airlock - 3 Piece (XL) FE370XL

Airlock – 3 Piece (XL) via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

This oversized 3-piece airlock can hold 50% more water or sanitizer so your airlock is less likely to evaporate dry or get sucked dry. When the temperature drops, your fermenter will suck in solution from the airlock, and if the temperature drop is significant the airlock can be completely emptied. An empty airlock opens the door for airborne spoilants to make their way into your fermenter unchecked. The extra large 3-piece airlock offers your fermenter even more protection, and is especially useful when cold crashing.

While a simple device not all airlocks are the same. Some other designs have only a couple holes in the plastic lid and this can cause the airlock to pop out during an active fermentation. Just like our normally sized airlock, our design features many holes in the lid that allow CO2 to escape easily. Additionally some other airlocks have a cross hatch design on the bottom while our is open to allow Krausen foam to enter the airlock if necesary. Better to clean your airlock out than to find it laying on the floor next to your fermenter 3 days later.

Another cool feature of this 3-piece airlock is that 1/2″ ID tubing will fit onto the center post for use as a blowoff. This can be handy if you have a really active ferment that is blowing out the top of your fermenter.

Please Note: Airlock only – stopper not included.

  • Includes 12 White Silicone GROMMETS fit any brand Mason jar plastic caps (1/16″ groove). Grommet easily inserts into 9/16″ lid hole (1/2″ may be too tight, pushing the airlock into the lid may cause the lid to crack; 5/8″ may cause a loose fit for the grommet). Grommet center hole is 3/8″ and is the standard size for Fermentation Airlocks.

Use to add an airlock port to a container of your choosing.  I know of several grommet offerings, most don’t claim to be food grade.  That’s probably not a big deal considering that most of the time this gets little to no contact with your beer.  Having said that, it’s nice to have a food grade option.

Hands on Review: Kegland BlowTie Diaphragm Spunding Valve!

A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure. If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled. It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.


Why a Spunding Valve?

There are loads of homebrew related applications for a Spunding valve ranging from pressurized ferementation to naturally carbonating to fixing over carbonated beers and lots more.  Check out our resource post on the subject.  It’s arguably the go-to resource on the Internet on the subject


Update: New Kegland BlowTie v2!

Since this review was published, BlowTie v2 has been released.  The major improvement is… a built in gauge.  Look for an update to this review in the future.  General concepts should remain the same.  I recommend purchasing the newer v2.


Hands on Review Kegland BlowTie Spunding Valve

The BlowTie Spunding Valve assembly consists of the BlowTie, a DuoTight Tee Fitting, a DuoTight to flare fitting, a DuoTight pressure gauge and two small pieces of EVABarrier Tubing.
