Valentine's Day jewelry for the second wife ;-)

Unread postby cpa4ny » Wed Feb 04, 2015 12:10 am

After much consideration, I have decided to change the valve.

Here are the materials:

- Speidel valve (3/4" BSPP male x 3/4" BSPP male) - ordered through our local Speidel dealer (I think Speidel uses it in some of its big SS FVs).
- TC 1.5" x 3/4" BSPP female thread - ordered from MoreBeer: http://www.morebeer.com/products/stainl ... -bspp.html
- Rest of things - o-rings, tri-clover barbs, silicone gasket & tri-clamp - ordered from AliExpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/T ... 53458.html

Brewed with this set-up last weekend - very pleased with it :cheers:

Thanks Niels.

Not that long, about 5 inches .

As they say, it's not how long it is, but how you use it :wink:

To brew or not to brew, that would be a stupid question !

Still... I would put a couple of these around your BM to avoid accidents ;)

What is it like to disassemble, clean & reassemble? I'm thinking about an alternative to a regular ball valve. I find the ball valve fiddly to disassemble/reassemble.

The ball valve itself looks like a single piece - can remove it from the BM and soak it in PBW.

Probably can disassemble it, but I personally don't find excessive scrubbing necessary on the "hot" side of brewing.
