Stainless Steel Weldless Whirlpool Arm Assembly (1/2" Flow)
Stainless Steel Weldless Whirlpool Arm (1/2" Flow)
 
The OBK Weldless Stainless Steel Whirlpool Arm with 1/2" Flow. Are you looking for clearer wort, quick chilling times and higher hop utilization during flame-out? This can all be achieved with the addition of a whirlpool arm on your brew kettle. This assembly is designed for installation underneath the handle of your kettle. Achieve the perfect whirlpool in the brew pot by simply connecting from a hose to your brew pump. Throttle flow, if needed, with the two piece stainless steel ball valve. Whirlpools will help settle trub in the center of your kettle, which makes it easier to pull clear wort from your draining ball valve. The whirlpool will result in a much higher efficiency if using an immersion chiller, this is due to increased turbulation of the wort. And for the hoppy beer lovers, the increased flow will give you higher extraction of hop oils and flavour during flame-out additions! This is assembly is built for years to come with its 100% stainless steel design. Features a 1/2" full port ball valve and 1/2" barbs on both ends. Full half inch flow for consistency in most home brew system builds (1/2" valves & hoses). The bulkhead is a specifically engineered stainless steel part made for brewing! Requires drilling a 1" hole for installation for the bulkhead. We recommend a step drill bit for this.

Please Note that this product ships unassembled and will require you to use your own teflon tape.

Add silicone hose to use for mash recirculation September 3, 2014
Reviewer: Justin A. from Guelph, ON  
I recreated this same set up but with OBK's 3pce ball valves and a male cam lock instead of the hose barb. Initial tests suggest it will work well for my purposes in terms of the recirculation design. Silicone hose can be added to the interior barb for mash recirculation without disturbing the grain bed (use enough so that it starts to coil a bit on the surface of your mash), otherwise leave as is for whirl pooling. If there was an alternative to the weldless coupler design, I think that'd be better. I wonder if a close nipple, with street elbow, washer and o-ring would provide more strength?
