    Bunging the fermentation vessel to avoid oxidation during cold crashing

    Sorry I didn't update this. I've been bunging the fermentor for a while now and it has been working well. Although the fermentor isn't pressure rated it doesn't seem to suffer from the vacuum created inside. The only issue is that to drain the fermentor into the keg I need to crack the seal...

After reading this article I've become concerned about the potential for oxygen pick up during cold crashing and wanted to get people's opinion's on...
