Hi everyone! Just wondering if anybody is using SSbrewtech kettles and if so what's you solution for a hop stopper? Iv emailed Dennis from innovative home brew solution and he cannot make them to fit the kettles as they are 12mm tube with an o-ring groove recess. I was thinking about a 1/2" compression fitting in place of the original adapter, although I will have to undo the ball valve after every brew day to clean it. Any other suggestions??

Thanks
Glen

I am using SSBrewtech kettles. I replaced the bulkhead they provide with the brewer's hardware one and use it plus a compression fitting to mount the hop blocker. Dennis made one of the appropriate size for me. I gave him the wrong height, though, so had to cut down the dip tube a bit.

Here's the bulkhead:
