I got mine at GW Kents

https://breweryparts.com/index.php

I was pleased with price, product, service.
Of course the racking arm came from morebeer.

Two great options are:

http://conical-fermenter.com/products/spares/
1" Sanitary ball valve

and

http://www.stpats.com/sanitaryfittings.htm
ULTRA Sanitary Butterfly Valve

I have the second one and like it much. The body is held together with a tri-clamp in stead of 4 bolts. I like this because I do disassemble the valve after every brew and with it I don't have to use any tools, well .. except an allan wrench to take the handle off, but not 4 bolts as well.. Limiting the need for tools is a major part of convenience for me.

Does the butterfly restrict flow on the dump? That's my only concern with those.

No.

But, I mean... if you have chunks of gunk that are approaching 1" diameter in the fermenter, then??

Any of these would be great. At this size it's just a matter of which style you like better.

Awesome, thanks. Price will probably be a deciding factor as it took several months and some bday money to save up enough for the fermenter alone. I don't want to get it and then have to wait another month to use it because I couldn't get the valves.

I'm about to purchase a Brewhemoth and the only thing holding me back is how I'm going to clean it. I was wondering if anyone had tried the Original Sanke Keg and Large Carboy Cleaner? It seams like it would work and I would not have to use 20 gallons of Oxy. Then I could spray it down with sanitizer using a spray ball. I don't really want to do a complete CIP. Any thoughts from the Brewhemoth owners?

For some reason you can't find it on their website. But google finds it...and you can order it.

BTW Just received my brewhemoth and I think I am going to love it.

Fits great in my freezer.
I would like to know more about your racking/sampling connection. What is stopping a bug from going into the sampling arm? When racking wouldn't be less messy to have a valve on the end of the racking arm.

I have a batch almost done... When it is I will take some more detailed photos. I think it will explain all.

If someone wants to ship me a Brewhemoth, I would happy try to clean it with my Original Sanke Keg & Large Carboy Cleaner(TM). Might need a longer rod on it. I've always found the Carboy Cleaner guys good to work with, they might even build something for ya. [email protected]

Kally, I must copy your great CIP design the results sure look great thanks for posting.
Do you know the operating range of your spray ball in GPM or operating pressure range?
I thought I put the spray ball part number on one of the forum sites..? stlbrews.org or garagebrewers.com
It was from GW kent, their standard 1" or 1.5" spray ball.
