15% + 10% Off Stainless Steel Cam and Groove Quick Disconnects

I’ve used ProFlow Dynamics Quick Disconnects on my kettles, mash tun, pumps and tubing for a long time.  They have worked great for me.  I put male connectors kettles, mash tuns and pumps and use female connectors for tubing.  These are made from Stainless Steel and are available in lots of configurations.  I also take the rings and pins off of these.

These are classified by Type.  That may mean something in “commercial cam lock fitting circles”, but I was initially confused by this.  Types are akin to model numbers.  For example, Type A is Female NPT to Male Cam and Groove.

PFD already has generally great prices.  As of this posting, promo code BREW15% takes an additional 15% off their entire lineup of homebrewing gear.

FFL to Male Beer Thread Adapter – homebrew kegs on commercial system – $5.99

Female Flare Adapter to Beer Thread

About, From Brew Hardware:

“Woah, what’s that? A game changer? Yes!

Picture this. You use homebrew corny kegs for you beer but you want to bring a keg over to your buddy’s house for a party. The problem is that he has a commercial kegerator and no, he won’t let you cut the hoses to attach your ball lock QDs. How about trying to serve from a corny keg at a commercial facility, such as for a wedding? There’s no way you’re going to get them to modify the lines.

Thread these fittings on your MFL equipped ball lock beer and gas quick disconnects and now you can thread on any hoses that are part of a Sanke keg dispensing system.

The picture shows the adapter threaded on to a black QD and there are other pieces shown as well. This item and price is for ONE fitting with 1/4″ FFL threads on one side and 7/8″ Male Beer thread. It does not include anything else in the picture. Beer thread is what is typically found on the back of a faucet shank. Therefore it is compatible with all of our tailpieces and beer nuts.”

As of this posting, Brew Hardware has this marked down to $5.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.
