Default Which disconnects?

I getting close to finishing up my brew system. I need to get some quick disconnects. I'd like to go with all stainless, so it's come down to either the B3 models or the Blichmann's.

Thoughts and comments?

Michael

Good luck getting them from B3, seems like everything is on BO with them.

I use the brass qd's from MCMaster.

Yea, you're right. That's one of the things I hate about B3, and the reason I tend to give as much business as I can to Northern Brewer.

I am really leaning towards the Blichmann's unless someone can tell me a good reason to avoid them.

Price? That was my reason for settling on the very nice brass ones from Mcmaster.

I have a extra SS QD that is a female with 1/2 threads if anyone is interested. I bought one too many and will probably return it soon.
