Those who are new to homebrewing may not siphon the hot wort from the kettle to the carboy or new container, while others simply dump the contents to another container. However, these two methods are counter-productive as they take a lot of time for home brewers to finish transferring the liquid. One of the practical solutions is to use a spigot or a ball valve.

A ball valve allows home brewers to put a 'faucet' on the brew kettle where the wort can easily pass through after it has been boiled. The ball valve can also be paired with other accessories such as a bazooka screen or filter to prevent the hops from mixing with the wort.

Installing a 1-piece stainless steel female ball valve can make transferring hot liquids easier. This ball valve features a 1/2" female NPT fitting. It is made from high-grade stainless steel that makes it resistant against rust and corrosion.

This female ball valve also comes with a lock-out handle to easily control the flow of the wort. The handles come with silicone grips for protection against burning and scalding the hands.

When installing the ball valve, make sure that it is close to the bottom of your brew pot so that the liquid will properly drain. It can be installed by drilling a hole on the kettle. Use the right coupler and a silicone gasket to keep the ball valve in place and sealed at all times.
