Default Anyone know where I can find this fitting to turn my water filter into a beer filter?

The picture below is from the MoreBeer beer filter. I already have the same filter and all the other parts except the Male Garden Hose to what looks like a 1/4" barb. Can't find it in my searches. Anyone have a source?

-Cheers

Wait - why would you actually want to put a garden hose fitting on a beer filter?

Cheers!

This is a good question. My guess is that it is a Pipe Thread fitting that is needed, not a garden hose fitting and barb. The reason that I say this is that the filter is designed to install in the home water system, which would probably require pipe thread fitting. I would go to Home Depot with the water filter and try different fittings to make sure that I got the right one. I think that you will find what you need.

Looks like (maybe) 1/2 inch NPT, not garden hose

Doh! I'll look for MPT (need to figure out that size) to 1/4" barb. I forgot I had adapters in place to hook my garden hose to the current setup. Thanks all for sanity check.

My filter uses 1/2" NPT, I'm pretty sure most filters like that do as well.

Filtering... do you folks do this speed up the process???

So far for me crash cooling it for a couple weeks seems to do the trick?

Even my "hefes" that I brew,,, if they sit to long in the Keezer become "crystals"...

Happy Brewing,

DPB
