The Bacteria Ball or Cup...

We do not supply a ball or a cup that fastens on the bottom valve because we feel this is a source of bacteria.  When the cup is removed to dump the dead yeast and then cleaned out, the ball will fill with air from the surrounding environment. That air may contain bacteria from anything nearby, such as your breath, the dog, the flowers (as a Belgium Lambic) or anything else.

It's been great participating in the development of new beer taste and styles. I feel a huge factor in our success is because of the quality of our small batch brewing equipment and our wonderful customers.
