Airlocks are an often undervalued part of the winemaking process, but make no mistake, these are a vital pieces of equipment. Protecting your wine from a number of harmful things such as pests, oxygen, pressure buildup, and more, this is one piece of equipment that is invaluable.
Grape and Granary offers a number of different styles of airlocks. The classic cylinder shaped airlock works well and is easy to clean if wine or beer should foam-up in the primary fermenter. The two chamber 'Twin Bubble' airlock allows for easy monitoring of the fermentation activity but is more challenging to clean if you happen to have a foam-up in your fermenter. Glass airlocks look great and are very sanitary but do not function any better than plastic and extra care must be taken not to break them as they are quite fragile.
