The Hop Bong is a versatile pressurizable tri-clamp accessory, capable of not only dry hopping oxygen purged hops into fermenters, but also as an inline carbonation/oxygenation accessory. This particular sized tri-clamp Hop Bong was designed for the BrewBuilt X-Series Uni Conical fermenters for their 1.5" Tri Clamp lid port. It works great for Grainfather GF30 fermenters or any fermenter with a 1.5" Tri Clamp fitting.
The side port features PCO1881 male threads so you have the option to add a Ball Lock Cap. When used as a dry hopping device on top of your fermenter, this will allow you to purge your additions of oxygen by flushing them with CO2. When used as a sight glass below your fermenter (if your conical has a 1.5" bottom port, or if you use it along with a 2" x 1.5" reducer), bubble CO2 from the bottom up via the Ball Lock Cap to rouse hops or carbonate finished beer.
Constructed from Nylon 12: An autoclavable, extremely robust, and chemical resistant engineering plastic.
