This is the Stainless Steel Braid for my new mash tun... just wanted to share to make sure it would work. Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks

Looks like it will work to me! How about a pic of it in your MLT?
Just need to find a rubber gasket and I will have it all together. Couldn't find on at Home Depot, anyone know where else I might look?

Ace true value hardware stores usually have a pretty good selection of o-rings rubber washers etc.

Well only since you asked for feedback...you don't really need the teflon tape for the two joints on the tee...just all the more sweet liquor. Just kidding, but those two joints are on the "leaky" side of business.

That's exactly what I was planning, glad to see it worked out.

Did you use anything inside the mesh tube to keep if round? I was thinking a spring from a spiral notebook (if it's stainless) would be good to keep it stiff (as it were;) )

notebook spirals are definitely NOT stainless. your local welding supply store will have stainless welding wire though, if you're sure that's the route you want to go. Just make sure it is NOT flux core.
