Our 2" drain port enables you to remove trub and yeast from the conical at the end of fermentation. After you have cold crashed your beer, you’ll use the bottom port to remove the trub and yeast. We recommend collecting in a sight glass or using tubing to direct into your collection vessel.
- Go extremely slow opening the bottom butterfly valve. This is done so the cone of material doesn’t collapse and allow beer to pass through
- Sealing your conical with a little bit of pressure (~5psi) will help the yeast settle and something you should do when you cold crash anyway. This will also keep oxygen from moving back into the conical.
Adding our 2" TC x Barb cap and a hose can also save you from a mess. Have the hose route to a drain or container for harvest!
