4/10/2016 – Is the OD of this fitting actually 1-1/16"?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The threaded portion of the fitting is very close to 1" in diameter. It requires drilling a 1" diameter hole in your brewpot.The measurement across the hex "flats" (where you would tighten the fitting with a wrench, or better yet...a socket) is very close to 1-1/8 inch. Make sense?
7/1/2015 – Can this fitting be mounted to the bottom of a kettle as a bottom drain so I can clean in place?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I assume you mean on the side of the pot, down low as possible so that it can be easily drained. In that case, we can mount the fitting quite low, but not the VERY bottom. There is a radius where the sides meet the bottom and we need to avoid that so that the fitting sits tight. From the very bottom up to the centerline of the hole, it . . .
11/27/2014 – Do you know where I can get replacement washers for this fitting?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes, we have them. Give us a call during business hours and we can put a couple into the mail for you. Minimal cost.Homebrew Heaven425-355-8865
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 . . .
10/1/2013 – Can I screw in a 1/2" male fitting to the other end?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Yes! Very convenient.
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 . . .
4/8/2012 – I'm just getting started with home brewing. Friends are all telling me to go with a larger brew pot. I've decided to go with a 10 gallon stainless. Assuming price is no object can you recommend a set up (spigot, thermometer etc.) that will allow me to expand as I gain experience?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: It's confusing, isn't it? I'll try to help with that.A 10 gallon pot is NICE to have indeed. It works well for a 5-7 gallon batch of EXTRACT beer. Nice indeed. If cost was no object (it always is at my house), I would go with the Blichmann 10 gallon pot. It comes with all the bells and whistles you mentioned.If however, you ever want . . .
1/15/2011 – what is the maximum temperature rating of the stainless steel bulkhead fitting?250 deg F... 350 deg F ..???
Response From Homebrew Heaven: A good question, but hard to answer.It's really just 2 materials, stainless steel and a rigid washer.In short, 250 deg F is certainly no problem, and 350 deg F is very likely no problem either. When used on a brewpot, the washer won't break down unless subjected to a constant direct flame at a distance of about an inch or so. Propane . . .
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 . . .
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".
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.
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!
9/4/2007 – i am looking into getting a brew kettle with the spigot installed. also i'm looking at getting the false bottom as well. Do i need the thru wall fitting that it shows with the false bottom or does the false bottom connect with the spigot? looking forward to brewing, thanks!
Response From Homebrew Heaven: You will need the thru wall fitting with both. The false bottom screws into it from the inside, and so does the ball valve (spigot), from the outside (with a threaded nipple in between).
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 . . .
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 . . .
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.
7/5/2005 – I am just starting in home brewing, so I appoligize for this question. I am a gizmo junky and don't mind buying the bits to make things easy. My questions is about brew kettles. If I aquire kettle with a thermometer and a valve, can I use an immersion chiller? (Will it still fit in the pot? Is ther any reason why I should not go to a local . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Your question is a tricky one, only because pots and chillers come in all different sizes. I've seen pots that may not easily fit a chiller if they had a thermometer installed. I know if you bought one of our pots and one of our chillers you wouldn't have a problem. Our immersion chillers are about 10 inches in diameter. The only reason you . . .
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!
