i eventually found them at homedepot, in a "build-a-bolt" bubble package. 4 stainless 5/8 nuts, 4 fender washers, and 4 lock washers. Was about 8 bucks for the pack. I asked home depot and they said they didn't carry them... the guy just didn't realize they were available in a "pre packaged kit"

And a light shown down from the heavens unto a shack of a hardware store in Ocean City, MD and the beer gods said hear ye, ye shall find your 5/8" SS Fender Washers to complete your quest and venture where ordinary men become gods.

I traveled about 15 min from my place of income to this lonely shack and asked of the man for these washers. He presented them to me like gifts of golden honey mead and I did take and partake of them. Now the next evening to come I will venture into the world of All Grain brewing and stand as a pillar amongst the toughest opponent. If knocked down I will rise again till I complete my quest to fill the holy grail with the beer of the gods.

I was having trouble finding a 5/8" stainless washer too so I tried a 16mm stainless washer from the metric section at lowes and it worked perfect.

Yeah I was going to go that route but no one carried anything above a 12mm

Default Fastenal Whole Sale?

I just ordered some stainless steel parts for my MLT from fastenal's website without an account or anything. Shipping was cheaper than most brew websites which is why I went that route.

I am going to do this project but I think I may try the Nylon washer. Not sure which one to get, so I will just try to dry fit it in the store.

I got my SS washers at Ace. They didn't have any standard sized ones and I had to go with metric. This actually gave me a better fit for the set up I've got. Unfortunately they were .99¢ each. I ended up snagging a few in case I ran into leaking issues and needed more pressure for the seal.

Default So this might seem ridiculous

But can the OUTSIDE washers be Zinc? The only required stainless washer is what is on the inside w/the wort, correct? I can only assume that as long as the seal around the nipple is good, then the outside washers never touch moisture (aside from possible condensation). Thanks for the help!

Matt
