I'll tell you how. 250% markup is about par for the course from RS components.Ahem. Cough. Keg King. Cough. 5 bucks a metre. Cough. Thick wall. Splutter.
I haven't used their's so can't comment on quality but it is silicone.
Fwiw, rs components sell a roll of 25m that works out ~2.5 times KK's price. I dunno how KK does it that cheap.
Awesome hose that gryphon stuff. Bought a couple of meters a few weeks ago at a bargain basement price. Very happy with it.I think the price difference is the quality. Some cheaper silicone hoses are known to kink and get soft under heat. The better stuff does not. I wonder how much silicone is in that cheaper stuff? It will last you many years, the couple of $ extra for a decent hose is worth it to me. Also the heavy duty at some places isn't much thicker than the light duty at others. I see Gryphon still has the heavy duty stuff for under $10 a meter, it is what I'm using and never had a problem.
I bought a few meters of medical grade silicone tubing off evil bay for about $7 a meter. Has served me fine so far. I can't remember who the retailer was though. It has nice thick wall and doesn't kink.Hey guys, i'm wondering what hose/tubing people use for transferring boiling hot wort?
No other than what I said above, it works fine and does the job. Seals on all my barb fittings without clamps, although I use them just in case anyway. With the thicker hose you can have a tighter bend as I have one length from G&G which I use from my chiller into my fermenter. Ive used KK hose in my 3v herms for 4 brews now and no problems at all.Has anyone had major problems with KK hosing?
