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. 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 include 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.

STATUS UPDATE: Our latest shipment of RIMS tubes sold out very quickly so we're left waiting for more. As of Feb 19th, it looks like it will be 2 weeks away but that is still a rough estimate. We'd rather you not pre-order these at this time.
Feb 19th: In general, order volume is very high and we are running 2 days behind meaning your order will ship about the second day after you receive a shipping notice via email. As always, lack of USPS tracking progress does NOT mean it hasn't shipped.
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.
Back in stock. 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.
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.
Model: 1/2TubeElbow - $18 Special Pricing through Jan31st only!
This is the most compact way to attach a 1/2" OD HERMS coil to welded couplings in a HLT when the coil itself is just cut on the ends without a bend to the tangent. It also has uses in a hard plumbed sculpture. When you do the math, this option is only slightly more expensive than a 1/2" NPT elbow and straight compression fitting combination. One end is 1/2" male NPT threads and the other is a compression connection to a 1/2" OD tube.
These kits are specifically for creating a hot liquor holding tank (HLT) out of a typical 10 gallon round beverage dispensing cooler. We use a unique bulkhead for coolers that extend the ball valve out an extra inch to allow for the handle to fully close and not hit the cooler. We've also adapted all sight glass models to work with the thick walls of the cooler.
The matter of enclosing the electrical connection of your heating element has long been the shortcoming of many Do-It-Yourself element installs. Many solutions relied on "potting" the exposed connections with silicone or epoxy which was a bit more permanent than practical. In addition to shielding the connections, another challenge is providing an earth ground point on the metal pieces. Our design solves both of these problems in an aesthetically pleasing and functionally adequate way. We have several options depending on whether you want to weld, solder or use gaskets to install your heating elements.
