EZ Clean® Flush Mount Bulkhead
Pop in a diptube for transferring every last ounce of wort, or a hose barb (not included) to hook up your false bottom.
The adjustable diptube swivels to suit whatever pick up angle you want, and draws down to within 1/8" from the bottom of the kettle. The single-piece construction makes for quick assembly and exceptional leak-proofing.
Includes 304 stainless steel bulkhead, diptube, and silicone o-rings

I have had a chance to look at most of the weldless bulkheads available and this one is by far the best available. And don’t bother with cobbling together various pipe fittings to make your own, you will be disappointed and the results will be half-assed. This bulkhead makes a clean fit on the kettle interior with a high temperature silicone O-ring and comes with a push-to-fit dip tube tube that is easy to remove and replace using only your fingers - no other fittings or tools needed. On the exterior, no other fittings necessary just screw your female ball valve right to the 1/2” NPT male threads.
I can’t say enough good things about this design. For the DIY kettle project, look no further than the EZ Clean Flush Mount Bulkhead.
Just added this to brew kettle and it works like a charm. No leaks and little dead space.
I really like this new bulkhead.I now have nearly zero dead space in my kettle. My one complaint is that the portion inside the kettle is round instead of a hex head. This makes it much more difficult to tighten the outer bolt and then tighten the valve without subsequently untightening the bolt. I haven't had any issues with leaks, but I would feel much more confident if I was able to tighten it more than just finger tight. I haven't had any issues with fitting the dip tube into the bulkhead like some of the earlier reviews describe.
awesome, works great
I got these bulkheads with the Edelmettal kettles and I loved the clean wort I produced on my very first batch with the diptube inserted. I like multi-purpose capabilities of this bulkhead so much that I bought an extra bulkhead to outfit a 20 gallon SS Brewtech kettle for use with a mash/boil screen. Once installed, this bulkhead offers up the ability to re-purpose a kettle (Mash to Boil, etc.) via components like the the 1/2" Isoflow/EZ Clean adapter or the diptube. You could probably attach a false bottom with the 1/2" adapter and then easily remove it from the kettle without all of the unscrewing for faster clean up.
