Subject: Ball valves for 35 gallon kettles
Date: 1992-03-11 19:13:15 GMT

I am designing a modest size kettle of 43 gallon capacity, yielding
roughly 35 gallons to the primary. I am looking for relatively
inexpensive (< $20 ) ball valves with inner diameter of at least 1/2
inch, preferably 3/4 inch. I intend to use this as the wort grant
to feed a collection of smaller diameter copper tubing to chill the
wort. Any ideas? Any ideas on size and flow rate for the chiller?

Any large kettles or fermenters out there? Anyone using V wire screen
or perforated sheet? Anyone making high percentage wheat beers using
a perforated screen? If so, what diameter are the holes and what spacing
between the holes?? So many little brew.
