BetterBottle Carboy Racking Adapter
BetterBottle Carboy Racking Adapter / PET Plastic / For Use With BetterBottle Ported Carboys / Easy to Install and Service / For Use With SimpleFlo Valve (sold separately)
This BetterBottle Carboy Racking Adapter couples a SimpleFlo valve (sold separately) to any ported BetterBottle carboy to make professional racking and bottling quick and easy!
The Carboy Racking Adapter uses a Viton O-ring to make a tight hydrophobic seal against the inside wall of a BetterBottle carboy. This very special O-ring also makes it possible to rotate the body of the Racking Adapter, without the need for lubrication. Racking is accomplished by simply rotating the Adapter so the tip of its intake stem is just above the sediment layer, opening the SimpleFlo valve, and letting gravity go to work - there is no need for siphons or pumps. During filling and fermentation, the stem of the Racking Adapter should be tilted slightly downward (about 3:30 or 8:30) to prevent sediments from settling inside it. The external pointer makes it possible to adjust the position of the stem even if the stem cannot be seen through a dark wine or beer.
The Carboy Racking Adapter is especially popular with winemakers and brewers who ferment on shelves, because carboys can be racked without having to move them to a surface with head room for racking canes.

Installation: The BetterBottle Carboy Racking Adapter has been designed so it is easy to install and service. Be certain all of the component parts are installed in the correct order. Do not attempt to drill ports in unported BetterBottle carboys, because the special PET from which the carboys are made is very tough and specialized tools are required to make sufficiently smooth holes.
Installation in 5 & 6 Gallon Carboys: BetterBottle makes a plastic Installation Rod for installing the Carboy Racking Adapter a in 5 or 6 gallon BetterBottle carboy. A rod is not needed to install a Racking Adapter in a 3 gallon BetterBottle bottle.
