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.

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

Female Flare Adapter to Beer Thread via Brew Hardware.  This adapts ball lock QDs to beer thread.  These fittings allow you to easily serve homebrew kegs on a commercial kegerator.

“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 on sale for  $5.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Convert NPT to Connections to Tri-Clamp/Tri-Clover

1"/1.5" Tri Clover Compatible X 1/2" Male NPTIf you’re looking to convert our homebrewing gear – kettles, jumpers, pumps, etc- to tri-clamp/tri-clover style disconnects, Brewers Hardware has a fitting for that.  They have an extensive lineup of NPT x Tri-Clover fittings.  These offer an easy and economical way to make the switch.

Tri Clover Compatible X NPT Adapters at Brewers Hardware

Brewers Hardware has a gigantic selection of Tri-Clover Compatible Fittings including some really unique offerings

More About Tri-Clovers from Brewers Hardware: “Tri Clover compatible fittings can be a little confusing at first. But take a look in any commercial brewery (or dairy for that matter) and look to see what they are using to make their connections. They will almost certainly be using Tri Clover type sanitary connections. The advantage to these connectors is how easily they are cleaned and how sturdy the are. With no nooks or crannies for nasties to hide, they clean like a breeze. There are no ball-sockets like a conventional brass, plastic or stainless quick disconnect. You can see every surface that meets your precious wort. If that weren’t reason enough: they don’t leak. I had been using brass garden-hose type quick disconnects for years and I was always fighting sticky dripping wort getting on the rest of my brewery every batch. That slight leak would also create an air-bleed into the line that would inevitably cause my March pump to cavitate.”

Brewers Hardware TC Sight Glasses

A large sight glass on a brew rig set-up can legitimately be classified as a luxury. There are various ways to assess your wort clarity during your brew session. During recirculation of the mash, or during vourlaf, you want to know when your wort is running clear and free of grain debris. Connect a sight glass into your recirculation loop and you can easily see the wort clarity without having to look for grain bits in a recirculation spray. It’s just right there in plain view.

Brewers Hardware Take-Apart Ball Valve

Up until now, I’ve known of two types of ball valves- 2-piece and 3-piece. The key difference between them being that the 3-piece can be disassembled for full cleaning. When I first started buying gear, I figured I’d go for the 3-piece because the idea of being able to take it apart and clean it sounded like something I should probably do. After seeing the complications of needing to use 2 wrenches at a time, while holding the body of the valve stable, I quickly concluded my 3-piece valves would never experience the joy of a ‘deep cleaning’.
