I guess there was a guy here a year or 2 ago that made 1 of these for himself. I ended up getting a PM from a member that was trying to make a couple also and was not really having much success. He asked me if I could make him a couple and of course I said yes. I am getting a conical for my house shortly and was going to have to make me a few anyway. I had to do a run of 60 just to get the parts cut on my laser to make it worth while to do it at all. So as you can imagine I have a bunch that can now be sold. I am going to add these to the website here in a couple days so you guys can just get them there. If you want to reply to this thread I will shoot you a PM when they are up on the site.

I think after all is said and done were going to ask $24.99 ea for the part WITH an extra gasket.

If you made some yourself and need the gaskets let me know I have a plenty of them and will sell em for $2.00 ea. Those will also be on the site in a few days.

This is the 1.5" Tri Clover ferrule to the WIDE mouth canning jar lid. I dont really have any plans to do anything else like the 2" Tri Clover or the small mouth lids. I think this part is just about perfect for what we're using it for.

I am trying to upload a few more pictures but HBT upload isn't playing nicely this morning. I'll keep trying.


Cheers
Jay

How do you go about removing the jar/lid without making a massive mess?

They way I am going to do it is use a sanitized 1 1/2" Cap, clamp and silicone gasket.

Let the yeast settle and then decant some of the liquid before removing the lid.

Pulling if off the conical will require a bowl under the jar if you fill it all the way.

You would be amazed at how many requests I get to build stuff with the "Hey I got an idea" sort of thing.. I love it.

We have plenty built and ready to ship with an extra gasket. Were also putting up a harvesting "KIT" with ALL the gaskets, rings, caps, with the canning jar and everything. Should be up in a few hours or so.

Cheers
Jay

Score. Is that First Class® Package Service new? I recall wanting to order things from you in the past and shipping making it a "Hold off until I have more things I need" kind of thing. That was some cheap shipping.

NEW? Kind of. We have always had $9.95 flat rate shipping, but for a long long time now we have offered shipping based off the product weight. If its under 15oz it can go first class.


Yeah I think this part can ship for what $2.99 or something like that.

Have plenty of jars, but a kit with all the other stuff would be nice. I'll just stop being lazy and grab the stuff. I just thought there was already a kit and felt stupid for not being able to find it.
Nope not at all. Victor was in the upload stage when he got called away. I have an idea. Check your PM inbox in a few min..

So I have to say I think this part is a solid one. I just had to do another order for gaskets.

So lets see your guys set ups with these. Post up a picture or 2.

Since you seem to have the ability to sanitary weld and like TC, have you thought about doing a sanke to fermenter conversion piece?

Beginning to wonder if jaybird ever sleeps. Ordered this late Tuesday night, got a response back same night and had it in my hands Friday. Well built nice welds, very happy with price and quality, way better than anything I could have built. Brewed last Saturday, great for trub removal, back on waiting for the yeast to drop.
