Blichmann ball valves vs More Beer ball valves
 
The More Beer style ball valve is cheeper. The Blichmann style is a lot more expensive. Witch do most brewers prefer.

I take you mean the difference between the standard valve and the 3 piece?

You can take the 3 piece completely apart for cleaning. I use the standard but will probably be convinced to upgrade by the end of this thread.

I've only used the two piece - to clean it I usually let it soak overnight in Oxyclean solution & kind of alternate between having the valve open and closed, to try and get it into all the nooks and crannies. My valves have served me well thus far. :)

My More Beer MLT and BK came with standard ball valves. They seem fine, but I need to add two more to my system. I am trying to decide witch ones to buy. :mug:

two piece ball valves come apart with two wrenches. unless you plan to tear down the bv after every brew it seems unnecessary to buy 3 piece bvs.

still waiting on response from blichmann on the one item i purchased that they make. imo customer service sucks and i would buy from bargainfittings.com who is cheaper and ships fast, also responds to questions.

I agree with everything he said. The penmanship is atrocious, but dead on.;)
