Description 

Why do you need a C02 purge kit? This kit makes it easy to purge your fermenter (or keg) headspace of air, which invariably contains airborne bacteria. C02 is heavier than air, and forms a protective blanket over your wort, smothering any oxygen-breathing bacteria. So a few seconds of spraying with the hose end of this will remove most of the air from contact with your wort. One 45 gram cartridge, used properly, will protect at least 15 five gallon batches of wort from air contact.

Consists of a C02 valve with tank pressure gauge that fits our D48 threaded C02 cartridge, or any other C02 cartridge with a 5/8-18 NPT male thread. Includes a C02 valve with tank pressure gauge, wooden base for holding the C02 cartridge upright, one 45 gram C02 cartridge, and 4' of purging hose. You can also mount it on a paintball C02 tank for a refillable C02 option (see our R84 adapter when you place this in your cart).

Due to the C02 content, no air or Zone C shipment.

Uneccesary but Useful.
I bought this to purge carboys but the best use I've found for it is to start siphons. The hose is the perfect diameter to fit in the smaller opening of a carboy cap. Put a racking cane in the other opening, attach it to another racking cane in the receiving vessel, and you can do closed transfers.

Nice!
I picked this up to keep a layer of CO2 on top of my extended aging beers in secondary. Seems to work! It's heavy; I guess that means it's heavy duty! I'll be picking up the adapted for a paintball tank soon.
