Stainless Steel 3/4″ to 1/2″ Reducer for Center Inlet Chugger Pumps

Stainless Steel Reducing Coupler for Chugger Center Pumps

Stainless Steel Reducing Coupler for Chugger Center Pumps

More Info


Highlighted Features
  • 3/4" FPT tp 1/2" MPT
  • Hex nut for easy secure fit
  • 304 stainless steel
  • Fits Chugger center pumps
  • Reduces size from 3/4" to 1/2 standard

 

 

1/2″ fittings seem to be pretty standard for homebrewers.  Center inlet Chugger Pumps are a little different compared to most high temp homebrew pumps with regards to fittings.  Most homebrew pumps are 1/2″ NPT threads on both the “in” side and the “out” side.  The center inlet pump is 1/2″ NPT on the “out” side and 3/4″ NPT on the inlet side.  Some people want this to be 1/2″ also, so a fitting is required.

This fitting is nice because it is female to male.  A lot of ball valves are female, so this would allow you put a female threaded ball valve on without the aid of another fitting.

Hands on Review: Blichmann Engineering Riptide Brewing Pump Upgrade Kit – Upgrade Your March or Chugger Pump

July 7, 2024

This review is by Homebrew Finds Reader Benji S.  Benji has been brewing for 10 years.  His favorite style is Festbier.  He’s an all grain brewer and member of WIZA (Whidbey Island Zymurgy Association).  Check him out on Instagram at neon_hop

Tell anyone that you spend hours cleaning as part of a hobby, and you’ll probably get a few odd looks. Unfortunately this is our reality as Homebrewers. Planning, prepping, cleaning, and waiting take up large percentages of any given batch. We often chase new ingredients, techniques, equipment, and short cuts in an effort to reduce the time we spend on these areas. Sometimes introducing new equipment into your process can make some parts of these tasks easier, while introducing new steps to others.

Pumps help move around lots of liquid in a short amount of time, reducing the need to lift heavy kettles or pots. They also introduce some additional planning needed for connecting vessels in a loop of hosing and cleaning after use. This has essentially been the summary experience I’ve had with my Chugger X-Dry [Hands on Review]. In the never ending quest for reducing the time and effort needed to use it, I looked at what changes I could make to my setup to make using it even simpler.

Blichmann Engineering is well known for high quality and well designed equipment targeted at Homebrewers. It should be no surprise then that their Riptide pump is a fairly feature packed model compared to others on the market. Particularly their TC clamp attached pump head with built in flow control and priming valve. In recognition of their audience, Blichmann also produces an upgrade kit that offers these same features to anyone with a Chugger or March pump.

Upgrading my Chugger X-Dry with their kit seems like a perfect way to take a good pump and make it even better, hopefully shaving some steps off of the prep and cleaning process in the meantime.


Criteria

My original criteria when looking for a pump were largely satisfied by the Chugger X-Dry, but there were a couple of criteria that were lacking, namely:

  • Head assembly should be fairly easy to take apart to aid in cleaning]
  • Flow control valve for use when sparging
  • Easy and intuitive to prime and get started

As the Riptide conversion kit is meant to solve many of these things, it made a natural candidate for trying out an upgrade to see if I could improve the usability experience. Additionally, my experience with the X-Dry suggested it was fairly easy to get into a state where it was cavitating. My hope was that the purge valve would help alleviate, or solve, this issue.

Using a Pedal Foot Switch for Easy Pump Operation

MLCS 9089 Billy Pedal Foot Switch, 2 Step ON/OFF(Continuous Running)Pictured: MLCS 9089 Billy Pedal Foot Switch, 2 Step ON-OFF Continuous Running

I use an on/off foot pedal foot switch for easy, hands free control of my brewing pump while brewing. I keep it at the base of my brew stand, relatively close to where my pump sits.  One foot press turns the pump on or off.


Always use caution when using your pump with hot liquids.  Likewise use caution when using electricity around liquids.  Hot liquids and electricity can be dangerous.  Always read and follow manufacturers directions.


Another style of deadman style foot switch is available.  That version requires you to hold your foot down to engage the switch.  As soon as you release it is disengages and turns off whatever is plugged in.  I went with the on/off, but understand that the deadman style is also available if that suits your needs.  Depending on what you’re trying to turn on and off is GE’s Handy Switch is another option that’s out there.  I use that for my keg cleaner and draft line cleaning pumps.

Install a Priming and Purging Port for Easy Homebrew Pump Operation

pump priming port

Updated: 6/18/2024

I use my March Pump to recirculate/vorlauf, transfer wort to my brew kettle, chill with a recirculating immersion chiller and transfer to my fermenter.  It works great, helps me chill down very quickly and overall, it shaves a significant amount of time off my brew day.

Losing Prime, Cavitation and Clogs

When I first started using this pump, I struggled with it.  It continually lost prime and, less often, clogged with grain material.  Disassembling the pump head is not what I consider a real time saver.  That’s no good!

Hands on Review Blichmann Engineering Riptide Pump

In the world of hot wort pumps for homebrewing, there are a couple of big name players that have dominated the market for some time. There are also some new entries in this segment that offer just as good function, but at a much lower price. Blichmann came in with a completely different strategy. Rather than trying to do the same thing better, or the same thing for less money, they wanted to re-write expectations for what a homebrew pump should do. It’s like the first time you saw a BBQ grill that had lights to cook at night and a built-in bottle opener. You told yourself, “Wow, I didn’t know you could get one like that… I want one!”

As with anything Blichmann makes, the Riptide follows suit with top-notch quality and looks, and a price tag to remind you that you’re buying top of the line. In the case of this pump, they legitimately bring features that no other pump on the market has and at a price comparable to the current top of the line wort pumps (that don’t have these features). So it’s arguably reasonably priced.

More Info

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

Do you need a pump to transfer your fermented beer or wine? Leave your fermenter on the ground and save your back with the KegLand Transfer Pump.  This 12 volt pump is self priming, and will pull beer or wine out of a fermenter into a secondary or your keg. It has a maximum flow of 1.2 gallons per minute, and will lift fluids up to 12½’ (although the higher the lift, the less gallons per minute).  Can generate up to 90 PSI pressure and 5″ of suction.  A 110 volt transformer is included so you can plug this in anywhere.

It features 3/8″ (10mm) hose barbs for attaching 3/8″ interior diameter tubing (our item E04, sold per foot), and a built in switch on the cord for easy access. Hose clamps are recommended for secure leak free tubing connection when pumping, our item D41 works well. Use with our 24″ Siphon Tube E77 along with the E04 tubing for your own transfer system. Flexible vibration dampening feet with screw holes let you mount this without worrying about excess rattling. The pump body is 6½” long, 3″ wide, with an overall power cord length of 7′.

Not for hot wort, recommended maximum fluid temperature is 135° F. Not for solutions with debris like seeds, whole hop particles, or grape skins which can clog the pump.
