304 Stainless Steel Clip on Trub Guard from Brew Hardware – $10

CLIP-ON TRUB GUARD

CLIP-ON TRUB GUARD via Brew Hardware

From the description: “Keep most of that trub out of your drain without a filter device.

This is a slight reconfiguration of our heat shield assembly that allows clipping to the side of a kettle dip tube to keep your pile of trub away from the exit point. This is especially useful when you whirlpool your boiled wort to make a neat pile in the center of the pot. That pile usually stays put until it becomes exposed to air and then it collapses and falls towards the sidewalls of your pot. This simple clip on guard will stay in place during the whole boil and keep most of the trub out of the pickup at the end of the draining process.

We position the clip for best fit on our truebulkheadelbarb but it will also work with a street elbow threaded into a welded coupling bulkhead that acts as a mini diptube.

The 3″ high x 5″ wide stainless plate should be touching the bottom of the pot for best results. The plate and clip are 304 stainless steel.”

Blichmann Hop Blocker Screen – $35.99, Save 40%!

blichmann hop block

Blichmann Hop Blocker via William’s Brewing


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

This Blichmann Boilermaker accessory fits inside any size Boilermaker (it has a hole in the back to accomodate the 1/2″ Boilermaker dip tube, seen in the above picture in the middle right side of each HopBlocker), and will captures up to 95% of brew kettle particulates. Based on preferential flow, the HopBlocker directs clear wort to the kettle drain valve and keeps particulates on the bottom of the pot where they belong. 5.5″ tall and 3.75″ wide, the HopBlocker is perforated with holes, the finer holes at the bottom, and larger at the top.

A sliding stainless blocking screen (shown in the starting bottom position at left) initially blocks wort from pouring through the finer holes, leaving the fine break material undisturbed at the bottom of the pot, while draining the majority of the wort through the coarse filter first. When the kettle is almost empty, you lift up the sliding screen with the handle (shown at right above) to expose the finer holes to finish the transfer of the wort from the kettle to your fermenter. The HopBlocker can filter up to 1 pound of pellet hops from a boil in larger kettles. The HopBlocker is designed to filter pellet hops only, for whole hops, you will need to have them secured in a straining bag during the boil.

Two HopBlockers are shown for illustration only, only one is included in the box.

Cooler Bulkhead Assembly – Includes Ball Valve & Barb – $25.95 + Free Shipping

1/2″ Weldless Bulkhead.  All metal parts are made from 304 stainless


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Here’s a 1/2″ standard size Stainless Steel FULLY ASSEMBLED SPIGOT for attaching to any cooler drilled with a 13/16″ or 7/8″ hole. The unit you will receive is exactly as shown in all the photos and includes a SS 316 WOG 1000 FULL PORT BALL VALVE for home brewers and distillers. Every component is Stainless Steel except the Silicone O-Rings. This unit is safe up to 450° Fahrenheit, much higher temp than will ever be in your mash tun cooler conversion.

Every effort has been made to ensure that this is a safe, durable assembly. The thread seal tape used is Oatey and non-hazardous per 29CFR 1910.1200. The valve is cast from high quality corrosion resistant 316 Stainless Steel and the other components are a quality 304 stainless perfect for non saline brew kettle, mash tun, or sparge water operations.

This assembly has 1/2″ Female NPT x 1/2″ Female NPT fittings and will not leak even after many years of frequent usage if you replace the o-ring occasionally. The unit is set up so that it can be easily removed from your kettle for storage, so remember to re-tape the nipple where the nut goes each time it is reassembled. The valve seals are PTFE (Teflon) and the O-Ring is silicone, both of which offer excellent corrosion resistance. Stainless Steel, PTFE and Teflon work very well together in applications including alcohol, WOG (Water, Oil, Gas), biodiesel, and fuels as well as light alkalis and acids.

Here’s a video from Bobby at Brew Hardware talking about their newer line of TRUE Bulkheads.

The bulkhead is available in a number of configurations.  The 5/8″ Barb version is included in the Cooler Conversion kit, that I have.  If you’ve dealt with other weldless kits you’ll know that typically a certain finesse is required when installing.  These are different.  You can actually tighten them down.  See: Hands on Review: Brew Hardware’s Cooler Mash Tun Conversion Kit – Making a Mash Tun
