Maybe they bought all the parts in quantity and are not looking to make as much profit of each single sale. Either way I am impressed by the price and I plan on ordering a setup as well as a couple extra parts to add in some sight glasses. Gotta love finding a deal.

My experience with weldless is... IT IS CRAP!!!! I have some weldless kits from morebeer for my mash tun. If I had just paid the money out for someone to weld the stuff I would have saved money and had a more watertight, sanitary and better looking mash tun. Right now what I have works and I'm not sure when I'm going to get it welded because I'm going to have to buy different fittings for the pickup tube for my mash tun. Do your homework. Find out how much EXACTLY each route costs. Then make a decision. I diddn't do my homework, it was a quick decision that cost me alot of time, busted knuckles and not a sexy as I would like mash tun. All that being said It works just as well as one that is welded, just ALOT more maintainance involved. grains DO get stuck behind the huge washers that hold it all together. hope this helps!

Thanks for the input but I just ordered two sets of those weldless fittings. One is for my friend and I am keeping the other. Like I said when I go up to school (2-3 weeks) I have access to all the welding gear I need being an engineering student so I will then weld the 1/2 coupler into the keg after cutting a larger hole. At least in my current plan nothing should go to waste. The only reason I am even messing with the weldless is that I need make a few brews before the move... no sense hauling empty carboys around when full ones take up just as much space.

I remember a while back seeing a website that had some weldless fittings for sale. They advertised that you didn't have to worry how much you tightened the nuts for the fittings, the rubber gaskets/washers wouldn't deform, or spread out. They guaranteed them leak proof. Problem is, I can't remember who that was.


Anyone know??
