To me, this is the most revolutionary part of Blichmann’s new G2 BoilerMaker Kettle – Review is the Linear Flow Valve. This valve replaces standard ball valves and offers great control (linear flow), flexibility (adjusts to any orientation) and superior cleanability (center pops out with no tools).
I’ve received questions about whether this would be released as a separate product and I can tell you that I’m very glad Blichmann has released this.
Here’s the “wow shot”…
That’s light you see through the Linear Valve’s body. No tools are required to take the Linear Valve apart. The valve simply unscrews and the entire inner workings pop out. No tools. When the thing just came off, it was a near jaw dropping moment for me. I’ve got my fair share of 3 piece ball valves that can be taken apart for thorough cleaning. How often do I take those apart for thorough cleaning? I wouldn’t use the word… often. The Linear Valve comes apart so easily that it will be cleaned every time I use the kettle.
