Back In Stock… TRUE Weldless Bulkheads from Brew Hardware

Visit the category page at Brew Hardware to check out Bobby’s video about True Weldless Bulkheads

True Weldless bulkheads are available in a number of configurations for varied applications.  The 5/8″ Barb version is included in their Cooler Conversion Kit.  I’ve used that extensively – See: Hands on Review Brew Hardware’s Mash Tun Conversion Kit – and I can tell you that it’s awesome.

If you’ve dealt with other weldless kits and bulkheads you’ll know that typically a certain finesse is required when installing.  They can be a bit of a pain to to get working correctly and can require some adjustments over time to keep leaks under control.  Depending on the design “just tight enough” is really close to “too tight, your o-ring just popped out”.  True Weldless bulkheads – at least the style I have – are well thought out, well built and you can actually tighten them down.

The only bad thing I’ve run into with these is… availability can be an issue.  They are popular and sell out.  As such, I keep an eye on these.  As of this posting, a number of configurations have just come back in stock – including 1/2″ with NPT Male Threads, Bulkhead with Elbow, and Bulkhead with mini dip tube.  Stock can change quickly.  Check the Bulkheads page at Brew Hardware for current availability.

MoreBeer’s Weldless Stainless Spigot for Kettles and Coolers – $27.99, Limited Supply

10409

MoreBeer’s Weldless Spigot designed for installation in both kettles and coolers.

More Info

from MoreBeer:

Do you have a kettle or cooler but would like the ease and convenience of using a ball valve to easily drain liquid? Are you a Do It Yourself Type person? At a fraction of the cost of having a spigot welded into your kettle you can drill a whole and install a weldless ball valve.

The problem with most weldless fittings is they are thrown together from assorted hardware. Common issues include leaking and lots of flex when you use the ball valve. These new weldless fittings feature are designed for brewing. There is no comparison to the weldless fittings of yesterday with their rock-solid feel and a solid leak free connection.

This unit is also unique in that it feature 1/2″ female threads on the inside. This allows you to thread in various other fittings that you can see below. Want to later make a mashtun… no problem just thread in our stainless screen. want to fully drain your boil kettle? No problem, just add our kettle maximizer! This allows for unlimited flexibility.

Weldless kit includes a 1/2″ Full Port ball valve and a 1/2″ barb. All fittings are made from 304 type stainless steel for a lifetime of corrosion free use. Full installation directions included. This product replaces our WL101. Manufactured by Fermentap.

You will need to drill a 1″ hole in your kettle for installation of this weldless spigot. We recommend a Step Drill Bit for this.

For cooler installation instructions, please see “Installing A Weldless Spigot In Your Cooler” under the documents tab.
