    I've been using the disposable ones with a reasonable amount of success, but find they go mouldy quickly and need chucking out after a few ferments. I have just trialled a Sterilock airlock, which works fine during the cold crash, but does not flow well enough to leave in place during a gravity transfer.

    I've seen a few sanitisable types out there, including ones at Craftbrewer that seem to be perpetually out of stock. There's too many for a dummy like me to make an informed choice!

    Anybody using something similar?

    I can't say that I've heard of many home brewers HEPA filtering their airlock air! Would it be worth giving a fine water filter a go? Sub 1 micron?
