Pros: All stainless, good quality washers & silicon rings
Recommended? YesAwesome price for all stainless bulkhead shipped to your door. I got the shipment super fast and had the kettle drilled with a step bit in no time. Installed the bulkhead with proper teflon tape, and haven't had any leaks.
Pros: Affordable DIY solution.
Recommended? YesI use this same set-up on all my kettles, MLT, and soon on a trash can fermenter. No issues at all. LHBS probably loves the fact that I've bought over $100 of valves from him.
Pros: Quality stuff!
Cons: Was looking for diamond encrusted solid gold, but they were out.
Recommended? YesOrdered a weldless fitting and a sightglass on july 2nd. Even with the fourth of July holiday I had them in my hands by the 6th. Game on!
Pros: Drilled my hole in my kettle with a proper tapering bit (cone bit). If you use a regular bit, you will get a leak which takes some fixing but it still works. Because I used the proper bit, there was no leak what-so-ever after simply screwing on. My LHBS sells the same part for $79.95. Hold up to heat from long full boils no problem, quality gaskets in there.
Cons: Not much really, if I were to design one myself....I would make the inside receiver piece a hexagon shape on the outside for easy tightening. Any set of pliers and a tight grip does just fine though.
Recommended? YesExcellent quality fitting at a price less than half of my LHBS, gotta love it. If you buy this for a brew kettle, don't try and use a regular straight shaft drill bit. A cone bit works best for curved surfaces, and check frequently to see if you have hit the right diameter as you are drilling.
Pros: - Great way to get a ball valve on your kettle without knowing how to weld
Cons: - If installation isn't very well done, you'll have a small leak.
Recommended? NoGreat Ball-Valve and great value. I would highly recommend it. Be careful in your installation or this sucker will leak a bit. Be sure not to over tighten or you'll pop your o-ring.
