The MoreBeer! Racking Arm and Sample Valve has been designed to eliminate beer contact with threaded fittings. The path the beer takes in and out of the racking arm and valve is very smooth, reducing the places that dried beer and yeast can hide and contaminate your beer. It also has a positioning arm that lets you know at what angle the racking arm is inside the conical. This design replaces the ball valve-style arms from our old conicals. The assembly attaches to the 1.5 inch Tri-Clamp coupler welded to the outside of our MoreBeer! Conicals. The racking arm has a 1/2" inner diameter.

The Sample Valve seals at the front, and has a stopper and o-ring that separates the beer from the threaded fitting. As you unscrew the knob, you pull the stopper back and allow the beer to flow down the barb and into your sample glass or keg.

Is there a replacement O-ring avail at morebeer?

BEST ANSWER: Yes. The sample valve o-rings are part number H585D. The rubber TC gaskets are H656 and the teflon is H658. In case you ever need the white valve seat (the tip of the sample valve's screw in part) we do sell those but only over the phone and part number for that is H585C.

Good upgrade
Well built. Havent had any issues. Fits nicely in my 7 gal SS chronicals. Much easier to clean. Havent really gotten stuck with anything that wouldnt pass with opening more flow. Really nicely built and functional. Do keep the threads lubed (I use lubri film).

It works as advertised but very hard to turn the knob.
The sample valve and racking arm works great on my conical. Unfortunately, I have to give this a low star count simply because the valve knob is so stinking hard to turn. And it takes a lot of turns to open and close the valve. It clogs very easy and you have to blow C02 back in and clear the clog but that stirs up the trub more thus creating another clog.

I'd suggest a knob that is easier to grip.
and more coarse threads so it takes fewer turns to open.
I'll need to figure out best practice to prevent clogs.....

Response from MoreFlavor
We apologize for the trouble you've had with the sample valve. One thing that can help it turn is using some thread lube or anti-seize; since none of the threads ever touch your beer it is totally fine to use. I can see how turning the knob takes a while, but it does beat a big mess from opening too fast or having threads fail and spill your beer.

The clogging issue is still something I haven't figured out how to guarantee. I have 4 MB conicals myself and still have some trouble with big dry hop additions and tightly flocking yeast even. Keeping the racking arm turned downward or sideways initially does help a bit. Sometimes I can push it out with CO2 on the top. Otherwise you are right that you have to blow back through the valve and it's a headache.

Hopefully these tips help at least a bit. Thank you for your detailed and honest review. We always appreciate getting great feedback like this. Cheers!

It's smaller than it looks.
I bought this for a 2 bbl conical - it's really designed for a much smaller unit. However, it works well and the sample valve disassembles for easy cleaning.

Best in Class
I just bought an SS BrewTech 14 gallon "chronical" - base model - not the BME. SS BrewTech has some great upgrade accessories, but their racking arm upgrade is just too big and unwieldy. It's a full on butterfly valve with a 3/8" tube on the inside. MoreBeer's threadless design is much more simple, elegant, compact, and lighter weight. They also include the HDPE gasket, which makes rotating so much easier.

The racking arm made a great addition to this fine conical. NOTE: I did, however, have to trim a half inch off the end, in order to prevent the arm from contacting the sides of the fermenter. I used a (new) cutoff wheel on a 4.5" grinder to do the job.

great upgrade
When I started brewing, I bought a basic no frills conical. I have been upgrading it as I can. I added tri clamp fittings first. This racking assembly came next and has been a great addition. I liked the fact that MoreBeer had this as a complete unit, not piece by piece. It is very well made and works perfectly. The service and price were good and you can't beat free shipping. I will be back.

Works great with my 7gal Chronical
I bought this to use with the 7gal Chronical fermentor. I call ahead of time to get an idea of if it would work and the Morebeer employee I talked to went out to check and reported back that it would indeed fit. I've used it on one brew and it does work very well and I'm really happy with it. Great product and service!

Great product
Good craftsmanship with very clean welds. The assembly is equal to the ones Morebeer uses in their conicals. All you've gotta have is a 1" or 1-1/2" tri-clamp port welded to the side of your fermenters cone. It was cheaper and easier than having all the parts sourced separately and hiring a pro welder to do the job. Morebeer had no problems sending it to my country (Brazil), so it deserves no less than 5 stars.
