12/16/2013 – Could you please verify the connections needed for the 11" borosilicate sight glass?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need one of these two bulkhead fittings (brass or stainless steel).You will also need one an elbow fitting that screws into the bulkhead fitting. Same thing, either brass or stainless steel.If you order the brewpot from us, we are happy to drill the necessary hole to accommodate the thru-wall fitting (no charge). Just let us know in the Customer Comments section at checkout and we'll make it happen!
8/19/2012 – I am looking at your 8 gallon stainless brewpot with spigot. Is there advantage/disadvantage regarding the stainless vs brass options? Also can you also install a thermometer?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The stainless vs brass option refers to the spigot.Functionally, there is no difference. They work the same.Many people (including breweries) prefer stainless steel because it is tough (durable) and impervious to chemical attack. The drawback is the cost. Brass spigots are less so, and fit more budgets!Yes, we can easily install a thermometer into your pot. It will require the purchase of a Thru-Wall Fitting as well as the thermometer, of course. We do the installation for free on this pot. See associated products below.
5/17/2010 – what is your phone number?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We can be reached at (425) 355-8865Our toll free order number is (800) 850-2739
4/5/2010 – Can this be mounted on the side of a 10 gal plastic mash tun if so what do need.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Probably, but there are a lot of different 10 gal plastic mash tuns out there. The insulated cooler type (Gott style), plain (thinwall) types etc. The Brewmometer itself has male 1/2" NPT threads. We've now added an image of the backside of this product to our website. You can see it by clicking on the product name, and then clicking on the blue View Enlarged Image" link to help you visualize the product. Whatever it takes to put a female version of that on the mash tun is what you need. Our Thru-Wall (bulkhead) Fitting might well do the trick (again, depending on the plastic mash tun). It comes with hard gaskets designed for mounting into brewpots, but you may be able to replace those with plastic or rubber ones for your application.
4/16/2009 – With respect thru wall bulk head fitting requiring a 1.062 hole? What size drill bit or hole saw do I buy. A 1"?Thanks
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We first drill a .25 inch pilot hole in the center of where we want the fitting. We then use a 1.062 (inch and 1/16) carbide hole saw, and deburr the hole. It ends up being 1.062".
2/22/2009 – What is the complete list of parts I need to use a brass ball valve and kettle t screen on a converted sanke keg?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: See the associated product list below. It also requires drilling a 1.062" hole for proper installation, some teflon tape between the nipple joints, and sockets for tightening the joints.
6/16/2008 – Is it possible to buy replacement washers for the weldless brass bulkheads that you install in brewpots?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, but they are not on our website at this time. It would be best to call us on 1-425-355-8865 and we will send you a few.
6/7/2008 – I'd love to order the thru-wall (bulkhead) fitting. But I have a few questions first. 1) Where do i get a 1.06" drill bit? 2) What bit material is best to drill through copper? 3) What bit material is best to drill through stainless?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: 1) We use a carbide hole saw, not a drill bit. A good hardware store should have them. It requires drilling a small "pilot hole" first, and then using the hole saw to finish it. After drilling, be sure to de-burr the edges to prevent leaking.2) Copper is very soft, most any drill will work for that.3) Stainless is VERY tough. Carbide drill bits are recommended, and you must use lubrication when you do it (dish soap works well). Apply lots of pressure, and keep the drill speed slow.
5/15/2008 – Can I have the thermometer installed with a spigot on brew kettle?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, you can do that.To make it all work, you will neet the spigot kit:as well as the thru-wall fitting for the thermometer:We also have the thru-wall fittings in stainless steel if you like.We are happy to install them both for you when you order the pot from us!
1/26/2008 – I live about an hour (if traffic is good) from the address on your website. Do you have an actual store or is everything here based solely online?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have an actual brick-and-mortar store in Everett, WA. People actually walk in and buy stuff!Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204Heck, you can actually call us on the phone, too! It's 425-355-8865. A person will actually answer as long as it's business hours!
3/9/2007 – Can you screw in the Kettle Screen and a ball valve into the bulkhead fittings?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The Kettle Screen screws right in to the inside of the bulkhead fitting. The ball valve has female threads, so it requires a Stainless Threaded Nipple 1/2" betweed the fitting and the ball valve. Here is a link to those products:
2/22/2007 – Do you install this item? What other parts will I need?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we do, into the pots that we sell. All you need is a thru wall fitting (either brass or stainless steel, we have both) and a threaded nipple (we also have that). Just make a note in the Customer Comments section at checkout and we will make it happen. No extra charge for the installation.
11/5/2006 – I live in Seattle, can I come and pick up the bottles in Everett? Do you have a "brick and mortar" store?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You sure can. It is literally made of bricks and mortar, in South Everett. Our address is:Homebrew Heaven9121 Evergreen WayEverett, WA 98204425-355-8865Hours are 10am-6:30pm Monday-Friday and 10am-5pm on Saturdaysand 10am-3pm on Sundays
7/25/2006 – I have purchased the deluxe kit and an 8 gal brewpot. Must say i love it all. Now i want to move on to an all grain brew and i want to get the spigot and brewmometer and just wanted to know what i needed to do to install it all along with the hole diameter
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's not too hard to install either one, but I should tell you that if you want to move to all-grain brewing, you are (probably) going to want an additional pot anyway. Of course, we can install those items for you. One is used to hold the grains and water, and the other is used to collect the runoff for boiling. There are other ways to do it, like using a Gott cooler for the grains and water, but it's still handy to have at least 2 pots (one for heating the water, and one for collecting the runoff).To install a Spigot and Brewmometer, you will need a Bulkhead Fitting for each one. We have them in both brass and stainless steel. You will need to drill a 1.06" diameter hole, install the fittings, and tighten them down. Add a Threaded Nipple for the spigot, and you've got it. The Brewmometer will screw right in to the Bulkhead Fitting.
2/21/2006 – Can I purchase the Thru-wall bulkhead fittings(brass, 1/2 " Npt) without buying a pot? I already have pots, but this would be easier than welding, it's a great idea.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Sure. Not a problem!
1/20/2006 – How does the BrewMometer stainless steel thermometer connect to the brewpot? I want to order a brewpot also. Do I need to order these items together so you can install it? Also, do you recommend it for beginners? Also, I am going to order the spigot, do I need a certain type of connection piece or hose to go with it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Recommendation on brewpot: Get as large a pot as you can manage. To connect the BrewMometer you'll also need to order a Thru-Wall Fitting (we'll install it for you!). Here is a link to that product.You could order just a spigot, but if you want it installed into your brewpot, order the Brewpot Spig Kit (it includes the Thru-Wall Fitting and Threaded Nipple necessary to screw it in). Here is a link to THAT item.If you like, on the "out" side of the spigot, you can add a barbed fitting and some hose for going into your fermenter. Here are the links for those items.I would recommend the 1/2" high temperature hose to go with the setup.
10/17/2005 – Regarding the Brewmometer, can you install the thru-wall fitting along with the Brewmometer? Thanks.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Into one of our brewpots, yes, we can do it with either a brass thru wall fitting or a stainless steel. Your choice. Both are available on the website. Just make a note at checkout that you would like it installed. If you have a preferred location, let us know as well, otherwise we just install it where it makes sense to us.
9/8/2005 – I am planning on buying the 15 gallon brew pot with the spigot installed. I am hoping that your company could also install a thermometer as well. Can you?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. Just order a thru-wall fitting (we have them in both brass and stainless), and tell us where to install it. Not a problem. We have the thermometers too, of course.
7/19/2005 – Can you guys mount this as well as a spigot to a brewpot that I would presumably order from you?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Absolutely. You will also need to order a Thru-Wall fitting (either brass or stainless steel) as well, however. The thermometer just screws into the fitting. Below are the links to those items:Yes, we can do the same thing with a spigot. No problem.
2/3/2005 – If I order the ball valve does it come installed, or do I need to add the 1/2" NPT fitting as well?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: No, it doesn't come with the fitting. If you want it installed, you'll need to order a fitting.You also need the stainless nipple that connects the two.
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
12/9/2004 – Do you just drill a hole and screw in the thru wall fitting, and does the ball valve just screw right on to it.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we drill a 1 1/16" hole, deburr it and screw in the Thru Wall Fitting. The fitting has 1/2" NPT (female) threads in it, so it is necessary to connect your ball valve using a stainless steel 1/2" NPT Threaded Nipple.It's a good idea to use some Teflon thread tape on both ends of the threaded nipple.
7/6/2004 – Will this brass fitting Contaminate the wort?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The brass will be in contact with the wort, if that's what you mean. The term "contaminate" is subject to different interpretations. Normally, the term is used to describe a bacterial problem. If normal sanitation techniques are used, then the fitting does not contribute to bacterial contamination. Brass being in contact with wort will indeed "leech" some elements like copper, lead etc into the wort, but it is very very small amounts. If you are concerned, you can minimize this too by treating the fitting in a vinegar solution prior to using it. This will remove most of the surface "contaminants" before they can be introduced into the wort.
11/19/2003 – If I use a thru wall fitting on my SS pot will I still be able to use as a deep fryer? Is ball valve ok for deep frying tempertures?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes; those temperatures should not be any problem.
10/9/2003 – can this be used with the bazooka screen?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, absolutely. It screws right in!
7/18/2003 – When you install the fitting, do you do it up off of the bottom so a false bottom can be used later?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes. This is centered about 1.5" above the bottom.
