Where can I find the hi-temp tube? I want to use this in my boil kettle, but I get temps to 100C so I want a bit of safety and have something save to above 100C :cheers:

I ordered mine from an acrylic tubing manufacturer directly...

Not knowing where you are, here in Calgary water boils at about 96 - 98 C. The acrylic tubing I have is rated to about 92 C... I take the extra 4 C... :)

I can mail you a length of the acrylics if you want...


That would be great! I have 3 15.5 G, Sanke Kegs that I am going to convert into a three vessel HERMS system. I have the table designed at work, just working on the details on how I want everything to come together. Cheers



So just to follow up, how did your system turn out??

How much did you order? Most places I've looked at have a minimum order on plastics

I'm in Vancouver

You can try McMaster Carr off the top of my mind and ship it if you can't find it locally.
Mmmm... Beer... *drool*
