I bought solenoid valves from dudadiesel.com. Jut remember to mount them horizontal with the solenoid on top. Vertically mounted solenoids will leak a little. I'm considering switching to ball valves, but they are about 3-10 times as much depending on the brand, type, size, etc.

I am looking at some ball valves on ebay right now that look promising that someone else pointed me to. You are right they ain't cheap.

shelving brew stand. very simple, but converting from a stovetop brewer to keggle/burner guy... so i went inexpensive, but got the shelving from a web restaurant supply vendor, it's beefy, i'm 225lbs and each shelf holds me without concern.

the keggle is a 1/4 keg with a diptube, bazooka screen, and SS ball valve. burner is a bayou classic sq14.

it's gonna get used saturday afternoon.
