Blichmann 1/2″ Linear Flow Valve… Install in any kettle! + Hands on Review

Blichmann 1/2" Linear Flow Valve

To me, this is the most revolutionary part of Blichmann’s new G2 BoilerMaker KettleReview is the Linear Flow Valve.  This valve replaces standard ball valves and offers great control (linear flow), flexibility (adjusts to any orientation) and superior cleanability (center pops out with no tools).

Bryan over at Great Fermentations just gave me the heads up that Blichmann just released the Linear Flow Valve as a separate component.  Bryan says it can be installed in a G1 Kettle – Related: Discounted G1 Kettles with Slight Cosmetic Damage – all on it’s own.  It can be installed in any other kettle with the aid of Blichmann’s Dip Tube Kettle Fitting Bulkhead.

I’ve received questions about whether this would be released as a separate product and I can tell you that I’m very glad Blichmann has released this.

Hands on Look at the Linear Flow Valve (a portion of my G2 Review)…

Here’s the “wow shot”…

cln_img_4522That’s light you see through the Linear Valve’s body.  No tools are required to take the Linear Valve apart.  The valve simply unscrews and the entire inner workings pop out.  No tools.  When the thing just came off, it was a near jaw dropping moment for me.  I’ve got my fair share of 3 piece ball valves that can be taken apart for thorough cleaning.  How often do I take those apart for thorough cleaning?  I wouldn’t use the word… often.  The Linear Valve comes apart so easily that it will be cleaned every time I use the kettle.
