I use the sample valve on the racking port and I rack from it. It has a 1/2 inch barb on it. It's not a ball valve inside - it's kind of a stainless steel screw in plunger. Loosen it and beer flows, tighten and it stops.

Kind of looked like it might be a screw. How do you sanitize the thing? Can you remove the screw from the body?

I've never tried to take it all the way off. How i sanitize it is just to open and close it in the sanitizer, so it gets sanitized in both positions. I don't think the threads need to be sanitized because they never actually touch the beer. It's definitely not as simple and sanitary as a triclamp though.

Derrin got back to me and sent this: "It’s a screw-type valve so it stays sanitary. The threads are all behind a seal that is pushed forward against the seat."

EBloom--Would you recommend it?

I would certainly recommend it. It definitely has practical applications, as well as being slightly less expensive. Plus it's a different toy to play with. Butterfly valves are fun too, but two is not incrementally more fun than one.

talked to brewers hardware and they said they don't make a 1/4 inch barb.

ready to buy. Am I missing anything.


for the bottom valve:

1.5 inch tri clover butterfly valve
1.5 inch Silicone Gasket
1/1.5 inch tri clover clamp

for the racking valve:

1 inch tri clover butterfly valve
1/1.5 inch tri clover 1/2 inch hose barb
1/1.5 inch tri clover clamp (times two)
1 inch EPDM Sanitary Gasket (times two)
1/2 inch silicone tubing (5 feet)

for the top:

1/1.5 in tri clover cap
1/1.5 inch tri clover clamp
1 inch EPDM Sanitary Gasket

that should be enough to get me started (I think). Later I want to get a pressurizer and CIP ball and most likely a thermowell

I'd email the Brewhemoth guy (me!). We have done one better than the pressurizer. A 1 1/2 inch cap with a tee welded on. Adjustable pressure relief, a gauge, and a ball lock gas in valve. Allows for preesure ferments, dispensing beer to kegs, etc. It is not on our web page yet, but an email to the Brewhemoth will get you a coupon to the up grade. Using two in my home brewery, as far as a thermwell goes, of the two, one has a 24" going thru the 4" cap. The other has a 4" tube welded to the side at the 4 gallon mark. Which works better depends on the temp probe you have.

Nice one Dale!

Tante, does the Brewhemoth come with a 4" triclover cap, gasket and clamp?
