I need a 3/4" ball valve for my 10 gallon kettle and have one at work that I could use but it's brass. I've heard that stainless steel is the way to go and to avoid brass. Is that because of sanitation? Would brass not be a good idea in this case?
brass is fine to use. just clean it well. Ebay is where i get all my SS ball valves. Seriously cheap.
