There are several food grade sealants available at places like McMaster-Carr. Many types of aquarium sealant are also food grade.

Hmmm. I thought we were talking edible paste. I'd have to find out what ever happened to David Kelps in 1st grade.

Are you are talking weldless fittings on coolers or kegs that get direct fire?

LMAO! I thought the same thing, except i never knew David Kelps.


I wondered about this application when I saw this thread. I want to mess with my dip tube/spot connection in my keggle, but it is not too accessible for soldering unless I take the whole darn spigot out again. Any thoughts on this stuff?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Someday, after I win the lotto and can throw money around spastically like all the super rich folks do, I'll brew an Elmer's Glue Pale Ale.

I would stay away from any glues and sealants for anything you ferment in, simply because it would be difficult to clean.

As for mash tuns look for Kewler Kits and see if you and find the round rubber o-rings they use.

I found a food grade epoxy at Home Depot this past weekend. It said it was for constant submersion in potable water sources. I think that should do it. I havd to look through quite a few epoxies to find this one though.
