No ball valve just a CPVC mainfold on the inside and a brass nipple on the outside with the hose. I wrap the hose around the handle of the cooler in kind of a figure 8 and it keeps the wort in and doesnt drip out. I just started raosting my own grains and I have a batch that I'm transfering tonight to secondary. I'm looking forward to it.
I grew some Willamette and Centenial this year but did a really poor job.
I didnt water enough or something. I had cones, but not very many.
That's about how I am mashing too. By "All Grain Set-up" I envision a HERMs type system. I'm going to start designing it new year and getting parts piece by piece as I have the extra cash.
For now, the igloo cooler mash and extract batches are doing the job!
"BOCK" stands for Brewers Of Central Kentucky
I think they are still between websites so there isn't one I can send you to, but I think they have a Facebook page.
