You are quite right, I have yet to find a SS hose clamp with a SS screw.

Yep, I have had the same problem:

Same problem here in all my hoses using SS Screw Clamps. I am moving to SS crimp type ones for next time. The stupid ring on pressure relief valves for keg taps are the same way. 100% SS Sanke tap and a frickin steel ring that rusts after a week in water.

The clamps I got from Mcmaster are all stainless. I've had one in my boil kettle for 12 batches or so and no rusting of any kind. It's the home depot crap you have to look out for. Now that the topic came up though, I don't recall where THOSE specific ones came from. Oh, well, I'll keep an eye open for rust.

Positive. Charlie Talley(sp?) himself said star-san would eat right through teflon.

Now, why you'd ever have star-san in your MLT/boil kettle is beyond me, just saying.

Dude, I am 100% positive you have the right guy but the wrong product .

I just found my notes on the podcast with Charlie Talley of Five-Star Chemicals. This one is from BrewingNetwork.com. He says that you shouldn't use PBW on Teflon or your wife would get really mad, as it will lift it right off the pan. He goes on to say Buna and Viton are fine, but others it will destroy overtime.

This is the another podcast where he talked about the bleach/water/vinegar no-rinse homemade sanitizer and then about his product Star-San. It was on BasicBrewing.com. Both were very enlightening as to the chemicals and their product.

Edit: I have found my notes from the podcasts and wrote them down if anyone would like to read them here they are.

Don't forget the lube when you go to a boating store because you're going to be bent over the counter. Serious markup.

Nice thinking Bobby. I think this is going to work great. Have you tested it with water to see what kind of flow rate you get with the pump?
