This mesh sleeve is custom made for the Vintage Shop PET Carboy. The plastic ring sits inside the neck of the fermenter with room for a #10 stopper to be inserted for an airtight seal. The ring actually holds onto the neck of the carboy so there’s no risk of the mesh sleeve falling into the carboy.
For brewers, the MiniMesh is perfect for adding dry hops, oak chips, or fruit additions, which can easily be removed at the scheduled time.
For winemakers, in addition to adding grape skins or oak chips, the MiniMesh is a great way to eliminate head space in the fermenter. Simply fill up the strainer with glass marbles to displace as much wine as needed to fill the volume of the carboy.
Made from food grade materials, the #50 mesh will not affect the flavor of the beer or wine, and is temperature rated to 122°F. Designed for multiple uses, the MiniMesh can be cleaned in the dishwasher and sanitized with the sanitizer of your choice.
For FerMonster users, the MiniMesh and MonsterMesh can be used simultaneously. The MonsterMesh will sit on the neck of the carboy, and the MiniMesh can be inserted through the stopper hole in the lid. This way you can have two different infusions starting or stopping at different times.
