Funnels

What it does :

A large funnel is an ideal device for getting your cooled wort from the brew pot into the glass carboy for fermentation.

What it is:

A funnel is a conically shaped object used to effectively collect and direct fluid into a container with a small opening.

How it works:

Very large funnels are available for homebrewing use. Some permit a screen to be placed at the bottom to prevent undesired particulate from going from the brewpot into the fermenter.

Preparation:

Funnels are used for the cold side of brewing (e.g. fermentation, bottling, and packaging). So, sanitized funnels should be used to prevent contamination resulting from contact with the funnel.
