Hey all,

I have a stainless 9 gallon brewpot that I'd like to add a ball valve and spigot to. I also have a Blichmann 20 that I use, and have completely fallen in love with the pickup tube. I was wondering if I could basically recreate the blichmann design in my 9 gallon pot. Does anyone have any suggestions on the bulkhead/pickup tube to use?

I still use the 9 gallon pot for smaller batches where the 20 is just too big, as well as if I want to take my rig on the road.

Bargain fittings has some good bulkheads. I use a 90 degree fitting at the pickup tube but you can get a custom one if you want.

Thanks! I always forget about bargain fittings! It looks like they have just what I am looking for.

Cheers!
