Just received mine last Friday the 26th. These are AWESOME valves regardless of the money. Very solid and well built. Huge handle looks great with the large keggle. Glad I had a chance to get in on one. Thank you much Bobby!

Glad you like it. Yeah, it's easily one of the best looking valves I've seen and I can only imagine what the retail price would be. Probably $60 a piece. I just have to pry off the locking sleeve on all of them because they only get in the way for our purposes.

Received my ball valve and sight glass Saturday. Great quality on both. And great price. I should have grabbed 2 more ball valves for later on. Thanks Bobby.

Crap, are you all out of these, Bobby? Just noticed when I was brewing this weekend that the brass ball value (on my keggle) I bought at Depot has cracked at the bottom. Dripping, but even worse it's letting in air when I drain (and killing the syphon). Weird is that I had just replaced the ball value on my mash tun, which had ALSO cracked (without even the stressed of being heated ).

So, I'd be planning on investing in some better valves... are you completely out of stock now?

Man I missed this as well, if you get any back in I'd be very interested in 2.

Sorry for those that missed these. It was a one time opportunity to grab a lot of them at a decent price. I wish I had enough to go around.

NP I'm glad you were able to get them for some people at a great price. Thinking it over I actually need 1" NPT anyway. Also trying to find some sort of economical stainless 3way 1" ball valve.... yeah.

Not a problem at all. Didn't know I needed one until this past weekend. Hate to replace the valve with another one that's likely to fail as well, but I also don't want to spend what, $40, on a nice one?

Ok so I talked w/ Bobby and he dosen't mind me posting here that I carry that same 3 PC ball valve in my store as well. I normally sell them for a couple bucks more, but for the time, I will take orders for them from you all for the same price that Bobby was offering them for (just trying to help a few fellow brewers out). PM me w/ details. I have 10 on hand right now and can have more on the way tomorrow.
I can also get you a great price on the 3/4" and the 1"
Cheers
Jay
