It works great but
The ball valve works great. Unfortunately when I added the false bottom. the hose barb that fits into the 1/2 inch coupling is 3/8 inch in size. My time is worth more than the time to call and make it right.

Great valve, fits perfectly
Buy this if you want a cheaper alternative to teh stainless steel ball valves. Does the same thing and here's' the kicker... its al lstainless on the inside, so no brass touches your mash..

Perfect fit for my home brew setup
These fittings worked perfect for my 5 gallon and 10 gallon coolers used for brewing. This kit takes out all the guess work and from having to find all the components to make yourself.

just what I needed
I have a home depot 10 gallon cooler and this made conversion to a mash tun simple. I live in the middle of nowhere and running around to get the parts would've taken the better part of a day, if I was lucky, but this made it simple. It slipped in perfectly in less than 5 minutes with no leakage whatsoever. I'm rockin' all grain brewin' now, mister!

Great buy. Easy to install with no leaks.
There is no substitute for this assembly. I tried to buy the pieces separately from Home Depot but the bulk head is a specialty pieces that you wonÕt be able to buy at a home improvement store. The fittings can be bought separately and changed out if your want to use a1/2 vs 3/8 tubing, but the actual unit that replaces the spout on your cooler is a must buy. Very satisfied with the product and happy to finally be brewing all gain!

Great kit, easy to install.

Simple Installation
Instructions were easy to follow for installation. Made sure to fill my cooler with water first to confirm that the valve sealed the opening before mashing. Worked perfectly with no leaks!

So I will still need a barb to connect the bulkhead to my false bottom, correct?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The kit only comes with one barb as seen in the picture, so yes. However, you can use the barb that is included to connect to your false bottom IF you don’t need to use it on the outside.
Will this work on a Igloo cooler as well?
J T on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it installs easily into an igloo cooler. I put one in one of these

Are the washers stainless steel?
G R on Feb 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The washers were stainless steel, not bronze. Hope this helps!
Will the braided filter for the mash tub work directly with this or is the adaptor needed?
I N on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Either of the "Mash/Boil Screen" products ( ZY22 or 7547 ) would thread right into the coupler that is on the "inside" end of this unit. No adapter would be needed. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Will this fit a 48qt Coleman chest cooler?
A shopper on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will fit, but I would also recommend larger outside diameter washers as mine pulled through the insulation which was not shadowed sufficiently with the plastic sheathing (very old 48 quart chest cooler-- Initial error state was failure to clamp hoses to false bottoms and disconnecting the hoses while stirring the mash)
Does this include the bulkhead fitting?
A R on Oct 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You get everything pictured. The bulkhead

the ball valve

and the barb.
Is this product lead-free?
G R on Sep 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The product meets the standards for food safe use - no detectable lead.
