Default Blichman sight glass replacement

I broke my blichmann sight glass (just the glass). I can't seem to put my hands on a replacement - anybody have this problem before? Any luck finding a replacement without having to buy the whole thing?

Thanks!

Have you contacted Blichmann directly, to ask about a replacement?

I sent an email in a few day ago, but no reply just yet. I want to have the option of brewing this weekend, so I am trying to order it quick.

What a PITA!!

Good luck with contacting them. They love to sell expensive stuff, then hide.

ugh... My buddy bought the Blichmann for our set up, while it is shiney... annoying they don't have parts available for fixing, or at least that I can find...

if I have to... gum to seal up the sight glass! haha

Luckily it happened AFTER my 10G brew session.

Well, I was going to suggest that you call them on the phone...but I can't find a phone number for them on their web page. I'd try contacting the retailer where I bought the kettle.

Or, if you still want to try Blichmann directly, Google turned up the following:

BLICHMANN ENGINEERING
Address: 2304 BROTHERS DR, LAFAYETTE, IN 47909-2299
Telephone: (765) 471-1800

Good luck!

Brian

Thanks Brian - I hate it when co's don't list a # for contact - can't believe I didn't think to google for it. Thanks!

CM,

Did you ever get a replacement site glass? I just broke my 20 gallon site glass and need to get a replacement A.S.A.P. for a brew this weekend.

Cheers.

I did get the replacement - midwest carries them all, but you have to pay like 16 bucks shipping too, so it was about a 30 dollar mistake by the time I was done...

yours would be this one:
