Our engineers have totally redesigned the 2" TC sight glass from the ground up! Standard sight glasses use 4 long bolts that need to be tightened in a criss-cross pattern to get even pressure to avoid leaks. Our new design is made up of only 5 parts compared to 26 parts in a standard sight glass. No tools are required to assemble or disassemble; simply twist the knurled end cap off. The glass is also protected by the stainless guard which protects the glass from even the clumsiest brewer. 

The sight glass allows for direct attachment to the bottom port of our conicals. The sight glass allows for monitoring flow, color and clarity. The 2" sight glass is also helpful when collecting yeast with our conical fermenters.

-1.5" tri-clamp

this was a great addition

this was a great addition to my CF-5. Very high quality construction, just like every other piece of Spike equipment. I was concerned about how easy it would be to take apart to clean, but there was nothing to it. Before I remove it from my conical, I loosen the body for cleaning. I found this is the easiest way to loosen or tighten the body. As we all know, when cleaning or sanitizing, our hands are wet and anything made of glass becomes very slippery. - I don't want to drop it! Thanks Spike for your continued attention to quality and detail. Whenever I purchase something from you guys, I know it will be high quality.

Makes trub dumps and yeast collecting a breeze!

Simply put, this is built to last. I bought my Spike CF5 one June 1st, and I've been using it every day since. A serious upgrades from plastic buckets or glass carboys, I don't have to worry about shattering glass or cratches when I clean it. Cleaning is a breeze with the CIP ball, which I highly recommend to anyone to gets a spike conical. Makes cleaning extremely simple and easy, I use fewer chemicals and water, and it is more cost-effective in the long run. I also purchased an extra butterfly valve and sight glass so I can do controlled trub dumbs, collect my yeast, more effectively add and remove adjuncts, and make filing a keg or bottling easier. Furthermore, with stainless steel and the CIP ball, I can brew a lager in it one week, and then do a sour the next. Getting this Spike Conical has seriously upgraded my home brewing. I'd love to buy a second one in the future. My only regret is that I bought an all in one electric anvil foundry before the Spike solo came out. If the Spike Solo is anything like their spike conicals, it is high quality and built to last. You can find photos here https://imgur.com/a/VwkTSgo
