Trick Out Your Kettle, Mash Tun & Pump with Stainless QDs – $47.95, Save 37%

From my experience a pretty typical discount for MoreBeer’s lineup of Stainless Steel Quick Disconnects is right around 15%.  Seems like they do a 15% offer once or twice a year.  Looking around their sale page, I noticed a number of SS QDS have been heavily marked down.  For example, the pictured QD is marked down 30% from $14.99 to $9.99.   Shipping is free with a qualifying $59 order to many US addresses.   Note: This sale hasn’t been officially announced by MoreBeer and I have no idea how long it will last.  Check site for current availability and pricing.

Trick Out Your Setup for $47.95!

This setup assumes your kettle and mash tun have 1/2″ FPT threads, your pump has 1/2″ MPT Threads and that you want to use 1/2″ ID tubing.  This is an illustration, purchase the fittings you need for your unique setup.

  • For kettle and mash tun – 2 x H503B
  • For pump – 2 x H503D
  • For jumper line – 2 x H507B

Normally those fittings would cost you $75.94.  This blowout saves you about 37% and makes your total just $47.84.

1/4″ Cole Palmer Luer Lock Disconnects + Making a CO2 Utility Line

Cole-Parmer AO-45502-20 Female luer x 1/4" hose barb adapter, Nylon, 25/pk

Luer Locks disconnects are generally used in medical and industrial applications.  Compatible male and female Luer Locks twist together to make a airtight, pressure capable connection.

I use Luer Lock style connectors for a CO2 utility line for my draft system.  That allows me to quickly and easily switch between a number of CO2 utility attachments that I don’t use on a day to day basis.  The reason I chose Luer Locks is that they are generally inexpensive.  You could also use these as a primary disconnect for your CO2 system.

These Luer Locks are made by Cole Parmer.  They feature 1/4″ barbs to connect to compatible tubing.  I asked the manufacturer for the PSI rating of these disconnects.  I was told… “Thank you for your email. the fittings AO-45502-20 and AO-45505-19 are male and female fittings and compatible. The Psi rating for these fittings together is 100PSI”.
