I am shopping for bulkheads and came across the brewers hardware fitting. Looks like a solid piece of steel. But at almost double the price of others, is it worth the price?

wow it looks nice installed. I can't really help you though, I use the ones from bargain fittings on all my kegs and have never had a leak.

I just got one for my plastic conical...haven't installed it yet because I still have beer fermenting, but it's a substantial piece of metal, and should seal quite nicely.

I love the look of it no doubt. Just seems like a lot for a bulkhead. I'll probably do it. Looks well designed.
