Make your life easier, thread these on your kettle, mash-tun, pump and chiller! When used with the male disconnect, they seal up very well in either flow direction. They will save you time and prevent messes. Just get several silicone hoses of various lengths and put barbed male fittings on either end. Then use them wherever you need to in your system! They are so much easier to use than pushing and pulling the hoses off of barbs. It makes things interchangeable for cleaning, and provides quick installation and removal.
This unit has a female disconnect at one end and a 1/2″ BSP Female thread on the other end.
