    Interesting, nylon has high heat resistance but is it fine for pumping hot wort around?

    Will you post some details/prices, will be interested to compare. I was looking at cam-lock setup for the grainfather, but not sure whether to just buy a kit made up or try do it myself.

    Sure, will do.
    I sent them a mail asking about sizes and pricing so will let you know what they say.

    I'm looking for a s/s quick connect or triclamp setup for the gf, I have an unused s/s gf camlock kit ;-)

    So, I did my GF conversion without a compression fitting. I left the swivel nut on there and bought a spare spring valve. Converts the swivel nut thing (ACME20 thread) to 3/8" BSP.

    If you do want a compression fitting FluidCo gave me a price of about R280. (You can look up the parker part number and they will order it in).

    Would you mind providing a parts list of what you used? I have no clue what half of these things are called

    Would you want to sell the kit? Is it the local one or from overseas?
