I'm going to be picking up 2 kegs tonight for conversion to a HLT and boil kettle. I'm starting to think about fittings I would like to put into them. I'm thinking valves and thermometers on both and a possible sight glass on the HLT.
1st question: What is the advantage of going with SS over brass valves? I'm thinking of picking up the SS weldless setup at Bargain Fittings
but I'm not sure if the extra cost provides any real benefit.
2nd: Is a 3 piece valve worth the extra cost? Bargain fittings doesn't offer this option but I have seen them around.
3rd: Anyone have any good suggestion on a weldless thermometer? I was thinking of these.
