guys - it has a blow off tube just like any fermenter. there is virtually no psi build up. yes it is a 1/2" thick piece of lexan. if i build up enough psi to break it - we're in trouble. if the lexan bulges - then we've got problems. but so far - works like a charm.
have you done a liquid transfer??? how did it go???
yes. the liquid xfer into the out post on the corny worked like a charm. the yeast extraction was not spot on as i would have wanted tho i did get a lot of it out. there was a thin layer on the bottom even with the diptube all the way down and curved to the inside of the keg. no worries tho - the thin layer was not enough to cause me worry and the beer is aging as we speak. all i did was raise the dip tube up a bit and mark it for referance...and transfer under co2 pressure.
i think you guys have missed the mark with the psi build up. with a blow off tube there is virtually none as it is released through the blow off much like a class carboy.
this makes two of these fermenters in our club and one has been used extensivly...without failure.
