Our special 5/8" pickup tube flows up to 4x better than our competitors 1/2" size. These 5/8" tubes work perfectly with our full port valves which have a 5/8" flow diameter; no flow restriction.

Our proprietary fittings uses quick connect technology. The quick connect fitting simply hand screws into the kettle and the pickup tube easily pushes in/pulls out; no tools needed.

Recommend Uses:

  • Boil Kettle - Create a whirlpool inside your kettle so hop material collects in the center of the lower stepped section. The side pickup will drain clear wort from the side, above the stepped bottom, avoiding the hop and trub material which has settled. 
  • Custom Kettles - Works as a top re-circulation arm or a whirlpool arm.

-One size fits all kettles
-Large 5/8" diameter 304 stainless tube
     -Simply push in for seal; no tools required
-Proprietary stainless push to connect fitting included
-Rests on top step for clear wort draining
-Made in the USA

Happy with the pickup tube

First brew day yesterday with my new Spike kettle and dip tube. At the end of the boil, I stirred vigorously for about 2 minutes to try and get the trub to drop in a cone. I did notice toward the end of the transfer into the fermenter that the cone started to collapse and spread but with the lip on the bottom of the kettle, it helped keep the trub contained.

Great design!

I love the side pick up combined with the stepped bottom. Quick connect is awesome too.

I bought two of these for a different brand of kettle because I was too ****** to buy a spike kettle the first time around. Use one for a pick up tube and the other as a whirlpool/recirculating arm. Parts are rock solid. I will upgrade to the single vessel SPIKE electric kettle soon as well as a few of the flex plus fermenters. NICE TO SEE SOME ARTISAN WELDERS IN THE HOMEBREW WORLD!
