I'm hoping mine arrives in thenext couple of weeks. I've got a trip I'm taking and hope it's here when I get back. I have a Citra Pale Ale, American Wheat, Strawberry Blonde, and Schwarzbier to brew!

Thanks in advance.
Are you wanting to add a hose to the inside or outside? If outside, I use a 3/8" ID braided line on mine.

On the outside. I would want to use a .5" ID hose on the output. Thorsten told me it's only 10mm but it's threaded and can be replaced. What's unclear is the thread size and diameter.

Ahhh. I can't help you with that as I don't know how to measure thread size. Are you thinking of removing the spout and adding a hose and pump?

I've been thinking about getting a pump and a plate chiller (kind of a DIY chill wizard) for my current setup and was hoping if I upgraded to this I would still be able to use it. Seems most plumbing sold for brewing is 1/2". I wonder if it's possible. By the way, awesome, very helpful videos and discussion.

Right. Optimally it would be a 1/2" hose barb off the spigot. All academic, I don't own one of these as of right now

See post #552 back in this thread hfk2 has a pic of his with a hose and pump hooked to it. He should chime in here shortly with your answer.

That's what I'm looking for, thanks. Hopefully he'll chime in because I can't quite make out how the connection is made.

Beradthefish, sorry for the delayed response, I've been away for a bit. I have the 20L BM so I'm not sure if the spigot is the same size, however all I did was use a length of 1/2" reinforced silicon tubing with 2 hose clamps. Don't over tighten the clamps because the the spigot is tapered and it will try to slide the hose off. It doesn't leak and is easy to take off and clean. I used regular thick walled silicon tubing first but found the material was very soft and the clamps would dig into the silicon, so I was concerned that after a few times removing the hose the hose would be too chewed up and have to be replaced. So far it has worked just fine. On the pump end of the hose I use a heat resistant quick connect with a 1/2" barb. Hope this helps.

Thanks hfk2. What type of hose did you switch to since the silicon was getting chewed up?
