In-Line Stainless Thermometer w/Disconnects – $53.99 + Free Shipping

morebeer inline stainless thermometer

Inline stainless thermometer from MoreBeer:

“You likely want to monitor the temperature of your wort as it moves from the chiller to the fermenter, and now you can do just that with this In-Line Thermometer. This high quality thermometer features stainless steel quick disconnects for easy installation in line with the rest of your brewing system, and many users install it on the “out” side of their convoluted heat exchangers and counterflow chillers.

As the wort runs through the body of the in-line thermometer it runs across the 2-inch thermometer probe, giving an instant and incredibly accurate reading of its exact temperature. Ryan Barto, our Fulfillment Operations Manager and also the thermometer’s inventor, says that this handy device will help you to keep better control of your mash temperatures, and makes it easier to transfer your wort to your conical through the counterflow chiller. ”

I own this thermometer.  Check out my Hands on Review.

Stainless Steel Ball Valves from $8.50 at ProFlow Dynamics

2-piece_ballvalve_edit_3

ProFlow Dynamics has a great selection of ball valves include 2 piece, 3 piece, 3 way, butterfly and mini ball valves.  All are stainless steel

Reader Feedback

Feedback from HBF Reader Tony about Pro-Flow’s 3 Piece Ball Valve:

Used them on this last Saturday for my pump and kettle after giving them a good soak in some oxyclean and then sanitizer. They come apart easily and go back together without much effort. In the end, easier than the ball valves they replaced since they don’t take much effort to take apart – 2 of my standard ball valves were frozen shut and wouldn’t allow for a clean out. It took only an extra minute vs. a normal working ball valve to come apart, so not much more work. Now I know my valves are 100% clean as you can see every bit and scrub where needed.

Shipping was fast – US Postal Priority, and reasonably cheap. I picked up some silicone hose too, as they have it cheaper than most other places at by the foot prices. Maybe not quite as good as a 100′ bulk buy, but close.

 

As of this posting, prices start at just $10 (compact 2 piece).  Coupon code BREW15% takes another 15% Off. Check PFD for up to the minute price and availability.
