More About ProFlow Dynamics

 

Camlock QDs at PFD!  I’ve used ProFlow Dynamics Quick Disconnects on my kettles, mash tun, pumps and tubing for a longtime.  They have worked great for me.  I put male connectors kettles, mash tuns and pumps and use female connectors for tubing.  Standardizing on this (or the opposite) means you can use tubing as jumpers and always have the availability to connect your gear.

These are made from Stainless Steel and are available in lots of configurations.  Those are classified by Type and Size.  Type may mean something in “commercial cam lock fitting circles”, but I was initially confused by this.  Types are akin to model numbers.  For example, Type A is Female NPT to Male Cam and Groove.

Use Heat Resistant Gloves for Minding Yeast Starters & On Brew Day

G & F 1689L Heat Resistant Glove Commercial Grade, LargePictured: G & F Heat Resistant Oven Glove via Amazon

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts! This is a Top Post! See: All Top Posts


  • I use a heat resistant oven glove when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.
  • These are also handy on brew day for handling hot, (but not wet) ball valves and such.
  • A lot of these types of gloves, including the pictured model and the ones I use are not waterproof.  As such, they should not be used with hot liquids.
  • Some silicone models are available that may offer some water resistance.  Generally speaking silicone gloves are going to be less flexible.  That may make it harder to pick things up.  You’re trading off some water resistance for grip.
  • Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.
  • Search Amazon for “heat resistant oven glove”
  • Search Amazon for “heat resistant waterproof silicone gloves”
  • Ove Glove HH501-18 Hot Surface Handler Oven Mitt Glove – via Amazon
