Or just seal the airlock and then dump the yeast which should work fine with no chance of air getting in.

Thanks to both.

Nightshade, do you worry about infection up from the ball valve after dumping? Guess not, huh? And BxB, ^ that, and the possibility of oxygenation were my worries. Heck, I never used a conical of any kind in over 16 years of brewing; old dog trying to learn new tricks....

No worry but I also spray it with a sanitizer mix (Purisan and water) from a spray bottle both before and after dumping yeast to make sure no nasties grab hold.
