I recently bought a 15-gal MegaPot from Northern Brewer.

When I tried to install the ball valve the outer silicone o-ring got crushed and when I tightened everything up it had a small leak. Does anyone know where I can get more of these o-rings? Home Depot and Lowes only seem to have rubber/plastic ones, not the high temp silicone.

McMaster carries them I know. Otherwise you can get them from most homebrew shops.

What size is the nipple? I have ones for 3/8" and 1/2". PM me.
