Description

The Fermentap Weldless Sight Gauge features a glass sight gauge encased in a chrome-plated sheath. All metal parts in contact with the beer are 100% stainless steel, and the gasket is a high temp, food-grade material. You will need to drill a 1" hole in your kettle. This sight gauge features our new Fermentap Bulkhead, which is a beefy bulkhead with a full port hole. This means that you can actually upgrade this setup with a thermometer which will thread into the body, allowing you to check temperature and fluid level off the same upgrade!

Features:

  • 11" Sight Gauge is perfect for up to 10 gallon kettles (dependent upon dimensions!).
  • Monitor liquid level visually without opening up your kettle! Extremely useful for HLTs on the top tier of a sculpture.
  • Stainless construction means the product will last for years.
  • Sight Gauge disassembles easily for cleaning.
  • 1/2" FPT on sight gauge base means you can upgrade with a thermometer!
  • Replaces our WL116.

There's no better way to very accurately determine efficiency and adjust a boil to hit the target OG than with a sight guage

Can this site gauge be used with the Brewzilla 35L by replacing the existing ball valve with this unit, then screwing the stock ball valve into the sight glass fitting?

BEST ANSWER: Not without drilling a wider hole. The threading on the bulkhead that comes with the sightglass is wider than the hole that is drilled for the BrewZilla valve. If you don't use the sightglass bulkhead you could unscrew the bulkhead that comes on the valve and use a 1/2" mpt nipple to replace the plug on the sightglass and couple to the back of the ball valve. The sigh glass would practically then be in the middle of the valve.

When using a pump with a sightglass that is in-line with your valve would cause the sight gauge to drop in level and become inaccurate or, at worst, it would cause the pump to suck in air and cavitate or cause extra wear and tear on the unit.

A perfectly solid sight gauge
This thing has worked beautifully in my kettle. Obviously, it works - it's a glass tube, that's kind of a given. But the construction is solid, I've never had any sort of leak issues, and there's a huge hidden perk - the stopper is 1/2" NPT, so you can toss in a PTD sensor or even just a thermowell if you'd like boil/HLT control. Pretty neat!

Definitely worth the money, it's exactly what you think it is
