Bungs, Airlocks & Spares

Demijohn bungs are either bored to take an airlock or unbored to act as a seal, and are available in rubber or cork. Solid, unbored bungs should not be used when there is any risk of fermentation being active.

Airlocks serve two purposes; they allow CO2 from the fermentation process to escape, while preventing bacteria, flies and other undesirable elements from infecting your wine. The bubbling action also serves as an indicator to fermentation activity. When bulk maturing, airlocks should be inspected regularly to ensure they have sufficient liquid. Alternatively, you can use safety bungs, which allow any gas to escape through a one-way valve.

Carboy caps are either bored to accept an airlock, or are vented, to allow gas to escape during bulk storage. Carboy handles are also available, to aid in lifting and carrying.
