Hey, thanks for checking us out. Please look around and use the contact button if you have any questions or if you need help finding something. Please use the product filter on the left to narrow in on a specific product category for our entire offering. <<<<<<<<<<<
If you're a new visitor, we'd like to mention a few things if you'll indulge us. Brewhardware.com has built a solid reputation for offering the best retrofit sight glass kits available to the homebrew market with a consistent high level of customer support both pre and post sale. In fact, we are so confident that our sight glass kits offer the best combination of price, function, and features compared to the competition that we’re happy to let you know what your alternatives are. We feel a great sense of pride reading through all the positive reviews of our products and service both on this site and homebrewer forums.
We have primarily focused on hardware for measurements during and after brew day such as refractometers, level indicators (sight glasses), and temperature/thermometers. Accessories offered including bits required for installing our products as well as custom made brushes for cleaning. We aquired a viny cutting machine to have more control over the sight glass calibration numbers and have extended its utility by also offering calibration decals for carboys and other fun vinyl stickers.
In late 2012, we started focusing on building up a line of custom and exclusive parts and kits that solve problems no other vendor has adressed yet. Keep in mind that we often take a different approach to solving brewery design issues so many times when you don't find something in our catalog that you found elsewhere, it's by choice and not ignorance. If you see something elsewhere that you think we should carry, feel free to use the contact button and we'll talk about it.

December Updates: Order volume is very high, shipping running about 2 days behind. 18" RIMS have been delayed a bit and MAY not make it for Christmas. Maple Mash Paddles are back in stock and we just brought in a ton of brass Garden Hose fittings.
We're getting very close to order deadlines for Christmas gifts to arrive in time. Get your orders in by Sunday night (DEC 15) to have a good chance of getting the shipment by the 20th/21st. Consider a gift certificate which you can print out and tuck into a card for those last minute scrambles.
We will be shutting down shipping operations starting Monday Dec 23rd and will resume on the 26th. Another short break on Dec 31/Jan 1st. You may get shipping notifications and tracking numbers via email, but actual box packing/dropoff will be delayed.
For those who celebrate this holiday season, raise a glass and cheer, tomorrow we shall brew some beer! Have a good one everybody.
We've passed over many different styles of mash paddles. There are budget machine made wooden paddles out there. You can even get a utilitarian all stainless paddle too, but this is one place where you probably want something hand made. These 36" long solid Maple paddles come from a local craftsman (Abbeycatbrewing.com) and it's what BrewHardware uses when we brew. The edges are nicely beveled to a moderate point which aids in cutting up dough balls. The surface is sanded smooth and left unfinished as to leave any contaminants out of your brew.
Enough selling, you want this paddle in your brewery and that's that.
We are offering these Harris silver soldering kits as a convenience for those who are looking to solder in either a welding spud or Tri-Clover element kit. These kits work for soldering stainless steel due to the aggressive acid flux liquid (hint: regular paste flux will not work, don't bother trying). While you can use other types of solder, the silver content in this kit makes for a stronger joint on items that have temperature fluxuations while in use.
It's been two years since we put out a promo tee shirt and thought it was time. This tee is a high quality Hanes 4980 featuring 100% ringspun cotton (4.5oz weight) with an athletic fit. It is extremely comfortable and soft with a light enough weight for summers in the brewhouse. Keep in mind this is a real silk screened process on a quality name brand shirt and not a cheap transfer or direct to garment ink jet. Four different colors available.

Hop Decal $2 and up
After we put out our latest tee shirts, we realized that the hop flower sillouette is kind of a secret handshake for homebrewers. It's a way for homebrewers to throw a subtle badge on their car window that only other brewers will understand. It's kind of like joining a gang, without the harsh initiation. These are precision cut from the same high quality 7-year all weather vinyl as all our other vinyl decals but this is the only one that is green. The small decal measures approximately 2.75" wide by 3" tall and the Large is 5.5" wide x 6" tall.
Model: Thermowell $14 +
More exclusive parts from BrewHardware.com! Thermowells are devices that install into your vessels (or within your threaded plumbing) that allow a thermometer, digital thermometer probe, or temperature controller sensor to be inserted but kept isolated from the liquid the thermowell is immersed in. We've sold hundreds of the probe compression fittings for doing a similar thing, but several customers asked us for a version that would allow the removal of the probe without losing the liquid in the vessel. This is also important if you're using a temp probe that is not already waterproof or made of food grade materials. You can get these in either 1/4" or 1/2" NPT, to support probe sizes up to 3/16" OD or up to 1/4" OD and all combinations are available to install weldlessly. All of these use 6" long well tubes.
We offer several different bi-metal dial thermometers in 2" and 3" diameter faces and probe lengths of 2.5 to 6" long. All of these units have a recalibration screw on the back for fine tuning. The accuracy is quoted as +/- 1% of the total range.
This is a automatic temperature compensating (ATC) model with both a Brix (0-32%) and Specific Gravity (1.000-1.120) scale. It comes with a zippered storage bag, refractometer, sampling pippette, and recalibration screw driver.
We have a decent variety of garden hose adapters to solve all kinds of challenges. You can use them to adapt standard male or female 3/4" GHT (Garden Hose Thread) from your household garden hoses to NPT threads or other hose types. Another use is adapting garden hoses to camlocks by threading one of these into the appropriate camlock. Finally, the barbed adapters we have are the absolute cheapest and most sturdy way to connect your hose to a copper immersion chiller. These barbs will solder directly to the in/out tubes of your chillers.
We've refered customers to Lowes and Home Depot for these in the past but we've finally found a supplier that allows us to offer the same great parts for around the same price and save you the trip.
