I'm looking to get some 1/2" NPT & barbed quick-disconnect fittings for my little brewery, making it easier to break down and clean, as well as give me some flexibility in what I'm sending where.
I was expecting to find the fittings in brass for under $5 in a bunch of places... I see garden hose quick disconnect fittings for that all over the place, but I was surprised and frustrated to find the cheapest ones for like $12 once I went away from the garden hoses. Granted, there's a smaller market, but that's a pretty big difference in price for what is ultimately the same thing.
I have approximately 12 points I'd like to put in quick-disconnects. I don't want to spend $200+.
Has anyone found alternatives to this, or perhaps some place where I can get these parts cheap?
