Semi-productive

So on my first day with my son I managed to get to the plumbing store to finish getting parts for my mash turn.


The ball valve has a threaded 1/2"id connection, but I wanted to use 3/8"od hose barb.  I needed a 1/2"od to 3/8"id reducer and a 3/8"od barbed insert.  I got the parts and you can see the results above.  On the inside of the mash turn there is a kettle screen seen below.  This will act as a large particle filter and keep the drain from getting plugged by the grain when I am sparging.  I have an identical setup on my Keggle so that when I buy a hot liquor pump I can just pump the liquid from one vessel to the other.  As it stands I will let gravity do the work until I decide to buy the  ~$150 pump.

  2. Awesome blog! I am also building a mash tun. You should check out my blog I posted some photos of my future home brew setup a few days ago. Where did you get the valve at for it?
