- Increase life span of your cask
- Easy to install
- Non Return Valve to control CO2
- Made from impact and food grade materials
The CO2 Plastic Barrel Spigot is the best way of applying a blanket pressure.
However it must be noted that this should only be used on a lay down barrel.
The huge advantage of using a CO2 Plastic Barrel Spigot is that it can maximise the longevity of your beer – it ensures that the yeast doesn’t react in the same way with CO2 as oxygen, CO2 extends the life of the yeast.
The CO2 Plastic Barrel Spigot is manufactured from FDA approved food grade and high impact resistant material.
HOW IT WORKS
The CO2 Barrel Spigot contains a Non-Return Valve (duck bill) - this is also used in the cask breather auto ventilator.
The Non-Return Valve allows CO2 to enter the cask and consequently prevents any gases from leaving.
There are other products that you will need to apply a blanket pressure on your ale in your cask:
- Aspirating valve
- Check valve
We recommend checking out the current law and legislation for the use of CO2 in the cellar.
