The one-way valve (waterless airlock) is better than the 3-piece water airlock for these reasons:
1. No need to monitor the water level.
2. The 3-piece airlock is made from a brittle plastic that can easily break. The reCAP fermenter is almost indestructible.
3. The reCAP fermenter is much easier to clean.
4. The reCAP fermenter is a much lower profile, therefore it better fits on shelves.
You can increase your pledge to include multiples of your item or to add another item. For example if I want an Aperitivo set plus a set of 3 Fermentation kits my pledge would look like this:
CAN: $69+36 + $35+$10 = $150
All Other: $69+50 + $35+15 = $169
Why are Shipping costs so high?
These are actual costs, we are not adding to the fee.
There is no shipping fee for US. Outside US the fees are:
1 Fermentation kit: $10 CAN; $15 all other
Starter Kit: $15 CAN; $30 all other
3 Fermentation Kits: $10 CAN; $15 all other
1 Aperitivo Gift Set: $36 CAN; $50 all other
The fees are our actual costs.
