Default Pick up tube for keggle?

I am in the process of making a keggle and am looking for a stainless pick up tube. Is this what I need: http://morebeer.com/product.html?product_id=5757
I am not sure because they don't have a picture.
I need to attach it to this: http://morebeer.com/product.html?product_id=19793

Or does anyone know another source for one.
Thanks

I already have the bulkhead and valve. Just looking for the tube part now, but not the screen.

try northern brewer iif you are looking to buy a pre made pick-up,
http://www.northernbrewer.com/weldless.html
if you are looking for a DIY solution Then just take your bulkhead to a hardware store and fine the parts to build what is in this picture.



Cheers

Looks simple enough. What is the hose clamp for? To get a tight fit between the elbow and the other pipe?

Probably for his hopstopper.

I made my own. It was cheap and easy.

I understand the need for 2 pieces so that it can be disassembled, but do I have to worry about an air leak and losing syphon at the junction?

The picture was from Norhtern brewer, so the hose clamp is a mistery to me too, i would say that you don't have to worry about an airleak but I also use a high temp silicone on my joints after I put it together. If you do it right you won't need it though. Cheers

The cheapest pickup tube is not having one. While I'd kind of like one, my first keggle batch was completed by running the wort out of the ball valve into a fine nylon mesh bag and down into the fermenting bucket. This aerated the heck out of the wort and trapped all the hops and even some cold break. After the bag was mostly drained I got the last 1.5g out by tilting the keg and rocking it to get the most wort out (bag still attached). It left less than 3 oz behind. It's a little bit of trouble but it makes the whole event that much more athletic.

Would you want a 1/2" stainless tube with a 90 degree bend that you could cut to fit with a hacksaw or tube cutter, or a 1/2" teflon tube with a 90 degree bend that you could cut to fit with a knife. Am cleaning up at the end of a job in AZ. and would throw out left over tubing as left overs less than full lengths are tossed.
