Barrel Vent Peg with Tubing
The Barrel Vent Peg with Tubing is hand machined out of FDA approved Food Grade, high impact material. The Barrel Vent Peg with tubing is used to vent the condition of your barrel whilst it is storied in the lay down position. The tip of the vent peg which penetrates through the shive of the cask is reinforced with a pan head screw.
Mini Ball Valve
The Barrel Vent Peg has a Brass Mini Ball Valve. This helps to control the condition of the ale when venting the your cask. When venting your barrel, line the vent peg up with the centre of the shive. Finally hit firmly to break through and create a new air tight seal. The Mini Ball Valve has a plastic tail which is glued and screwed in place. The Mini Ball Valve handle has an 90 degree operation to fully open and close. Consequently this gives greater control over the condition and helps to decrease the amount of wastage.
The Barrel Vent Peg comes with 12” (300mm) of tubing. This fits on to the mini ball valve tail and helps to direct the flow into a bucket or drain. In conclusion the Barrel Vent Peg with Tubing is a really clean and simple way of venting lay down casks.
With this method you will not need any other venting equipment as the mini ball valve works as your traditional hard and soft peg. Especially relevant is the mini ball valve, which when closed works like the hard peg.
