The guys at MoreBeer have made adding a ball valve to a stainless brew kettle, cooler or conical easy and inexpensive. Do you have a stainless steel home beer brewing kettle or homebrew cooler and would like the ease and convenience of using a ball valve to drain liquid? At just a fraction of the cost of having a spigot welded into your kettle you can install a weldless ball valve yourself with out worry of leaks. More Beer even includes complete installation directions with this kit.
These new weldless home brewing ball valve kits are designed for beer brewing and are no comparison to the weldless fittings of yesterday. This homebrewing ball valve kit is also unique in that it feature 1/2″ female threads on the inside. This allows you to thread in various other fittings that you can see below. Want to later make a mashtun… no problem just thread in our stainless screen. want to fully drain your boil kettle? No problem, just add our kettle maximizer! This allows for unlimited flexibility. Best of all, they are easy to install. I recommend using a step drill bit to make things super easy. This weldless home brewing valve kit includes a 1/2″ Full Port ball valve and a 1/2″ barb. All fittings are made from 304 type stainless steel for a lifetime of corrosion free use.
