15G cornies as primary fermenters

For those of you using them: what have you done for racking off? Shortened dip tube, dumping via a picnic faucet or hose/similar, siphon, or other?

I am aiming to transfer beer under pressure, minimize exposure to O2, and avoid heavy lifting (as I’ll be doing lots of 10G+ plus batches in the future).

I’m not interested in the conicals due to cost and space constraints.


I don’t use these, but have thought about it, mostly for being able to transfer with CO2. If I were to get one, I would trim ~3" off the diptube.

I use 10 gal. cornies for fermenting. I found that trimming an inch off the diptube was plenty. More than that and you start leaving beer behind
