A small airlock, ideal for limited space, lets out the fermentation gas and stops air from getting back in the fermenter.

This is a chamber style Airlock that fits our bored and rubber or cork bungs and grommets. In order to use this airlock half fill the bottom chamber with water, then replace the lid. Using an airlock protects the "wort" or "must" by allowing any carbon dioxide produced during fermentation to escape whilst preventing the  admittance of air.  Our air locks are also designed to be a visual aid.  The clear plastic means you can see how fast the CO2 is being created and assess how the fermentation is progressing.

The Small Airlock ensures a contamination-free environment for brewing vessels. Homebrewers and UK product designers have developed this essential equipment to be as effective and easy to use as possible.

Easy to use: Part fill with water and replace the lid into position. All you have to do then is check that water is in the airlock from time to time.

The small airlock can also cope with the more vigorous fermentations.

Sleek, easy-clean design

Minimises evaporation

What Is an airlock?

An airlock has many names, often called a fermentation lock, bubbler, trap or lock, although the proper term is an airlock. It is used during fermentation to stop air from entering the fermenter whilst allowing the carbon dioxide gas produced during fermentation to escape. This small airlock (handy airlock) has a two-piece design, the main chamber, and a top part.

Why Do You Need It?

An airlock is a vital piece of equipment in the brewing process. The airlock will stop any oxygen from getting inside the fermenter whilst allowing any gas made during fermentation to escape. The air surrounding us has microscopic bacteria that we are immune to, but the fermenting liquid may not. The bacteria will then attack the fermenting beer, wine or cider and turn it into vinegar - not very pleasant. The airlock is a barrier between the air and the fermenting liquid. Without an airlock, the risk of bacteria getting into the brew would increase significantly.

How Do You Use It?

The small airlock is simple to fill with water. Just remove the top part and pour water into the outer chamber, to about halfway, then replace the top. The airlock can then be inserted into the grommet on your fermenter lid or pushed in a bung first if the opening is wide. This type of airlock is almost silent in operation and is smaller than other types - ideal for those with limited headspace.
