Hey I have various 1/2" NPT parts in my rig. Some are 316SS, some 304SS, and with different

line up all my v...

Followup: using a tube cutter, carefully, worked and the fittings went on. All except for one

pieces enough th...

Hey Bobby, I would've loved to have bought the fittings from you but it's just as hard - I've
had a lot of stuff from the USA get stuck at the border here in Canada. Somehow the Chinese

I'm planning to brew a belgian quadrupel. I'll be using dry abbey yeast. Getting full
attenuation has been an ongoing challenge. (Don't ask, I use a ferm freezer with a temp
