There's a weighted pressure relief unit on top of the lid simply pull that out when you drain the fermenter.kappclark said:What happens when you drain off the yeast ? Wouldn't this create negative pressure in the top ? Do u need to open a valve at the top ?
Get the triclamp fittings and purge with CO2 if you are worried, the co2 made during fermentation should fill up that space and force out any extra air.AHammer16 said:Will the 14 gallon fit into a standard refridge? Wait i suppose i could measure myself, i have the damn dimensions here in front of me. 20 x20x31.5
So you are saying i cant pressure transferr with the standard fittings? I thought the tri clamp were just easier to dissassemble for cleaning.
What about the head space left for a 5 gall. batch in a 14 gallon fermentor, is that a problem? Seems like alot of headspace.
