Prepare to fill:

  1. Make sure you fermenter and all components are sanitized. This can be done by submerging them in Star San before assembly and/or spraying them down with a squirt bottle.
  2. Seal up the conical after it is done being sanitized and attach your blow off hose to the 1.5" TC lid port, with the hose feeding into a bucket of sanitizer.

How to fill:

The most sanitary way to fill a conical is through the bottom 2" drain port. We recommend our 2" TC x Barb accessory and a silicone hose coming from your chiller or kettle.

  1. Open the 2" butterfly valve and start the flow of wort in the bottom drain.
  2. Verify air is escaping from the blow off hose (if so, you'll see air pushing into your sanitized bucket in the form of bubbles)
  3. Fill until your boil kettle is empty
  4. Close the bottom drain port on the fermenter
  5. Remove the 2" TC x Barb accessory and spray the outside with Star San
