AHS Sight Glass
 
Austin Homebrew Supply

any opinions? $40 with fittings, "unbreakable" polycarbonate.

Looks like a cheap price, even with the shipping...

slim chillingsworth 10-25-2008 04:13 PM

no shipping for me, just a short bike ride.

The Pol 10-25-2008 04:15 PM

Then it is the best deal I have seen... good find

I have two, only on my boil kelttle and one on my HLT. I've dropped the keggle once or twice, pretty much right on the sight glass and it took it like a champ.

yeah when i was at the shop one of the guys whacked it against the counter as hard as he could to show how strong it is.

It's the stainless fitting that costs the most. I sometimes get good deals on large lots of them so the kits I've offered to members have been about half that price.

The only reason I would look into this one over Austin Homebrew's is that is has the port for a thermometer and it is cheaper, even with shipping.

I just don't mess around with weldless parts though because I don't advocate them at all. I know they work for some folks, but it's not my style.

have you found a non-bulk source for the polycarbonate tubing?
