Evening all. Thought this might be a case where someone might have an idea/solution for my problem.
I have a large steam jacketed kettle sometimes used for a mashtun, and up til now I've used a silicon fda gasket material, with a thin ss sheet, finished off with lots of fda silicone around the edges.
For the bulkhead, I had a 90 brass elbow with 1/2" pipe thread & bazooka screens above, and a barb below with tube below (I know, should have taken a pic before I took it apart ;?).
I've attached pics and hope someone might suggest some type of bulkhead/drain system that will be removeable and/or cleanable, non-leaking, food grade, etc.
I've considered soldering, thin strips, etc., but hard to bend to fit, and don't want to do permanent damage if possible.
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
