Plastic, Brass and Stainless Steel Fittings

Threaded pipes in plumbing installations used to deliver liquids under pressure. They are the most conventional and cheapest way to join piping systems. Threaded pipes are used to attach pipes with small diameters. They are used in different applications; thus they are not only used in attaching components in a plumbing system, but they are also used in customizing a home brewery setup.

There are many reasons why home brewers need to use pipe fittings. They can be used to customize a simple brew pot into a highly functional mash or lauter tun. By using them, you can turn an ordinary brew pot into something special by adding more accessories to the pot such as a sight gauge, bazooka screen, spigot, thermometer and many others.
