Do you find that you have to grind the threads off as Bobby did, or does the silicone tubing fit on there without grinding?

I have a 3/4" camlock that I bought some #317 silicone o-rings from o-rings and more. The OD of the oring is a bit on the small side. It still seems to be retained by the internal groove - I can't shake it out, but I have not brew tested it yet.

Curious if you had another idea.

I don't have a plan, I just figured I could buy a bigger size from the same place people are getting the 1/2" gaskets. Let us know how it works with hot wort.....sounds like you might be okay.

I don't think the tubing will fit over a nipple without grinding it down the threads.

I've ordered stock of the Type Bs in 1/2"

The orange ones seem to seal fine.
Do you plan to continue to carry these even when this lot sells out?

I set mine up like bobby had in his video with the elbows and threaded fittings instead of the hose barb. There was no way I coild get the 1/2" ID silicone tubbing over it without grinding it. The one thing I didn't try was softening it up in boiled water... Don't know if it would even work.

I have a standing arrangement with my vendor to carry the cam locks.

I think either the o-rings or the silicone gasket will work ok if it is sealing.

I will have them in stock as long as I can keep up with demand.

I had ordered mine directly earlier this week when they came back in stock. I wish I had waited too, especially since I will be ordering other parts from Bargain fittings also.

Guess I will be investing in a bench grinder. Oh well, I have been wanting one anyway.

I'm glad you all just got this in as I'm just buying parts for my AG setup!! The Type C connectors I assume are supposed to fit over a 1/2" ID hose and be clamped correct?

Also, My HLT will double as my fermentor. It will be a 25 gal SS Flat bottom Barrel. About 17.5" diameter. Any ideas on how to create a pickup tube that can be rotated to double as a racking tube connected to a 1/2" SS Ball Valve?

All Fittings will likely be 1/2" and welded on.

The C fittings do fit 1/2" ID hose and you will use a clamp.


There is no easy way to devise a racking pickup tube, especially with welded fittings. I suggest you use a standard pickup and raise it up off the bottom before using it as a fermenter. Compression fittings will allow you to loosen the compression nut and rotate it up and down.
