+1. I have one piece of silicone tubing on my mash tun valve. Pretty pricey.I've seen PVC free hose material sold online. What's the point? Has anyone here upgraded original tubing they received in a kit for any reason?
I've never dealt with a kit, but I swear by silicone tubing. It is far superior to other materials. The biggest characteristic for me is ease of handling. I could never get the other tubing stay where I want it.
I like the silicon but it is expensive. I got some once but the next time I needed hose I didn't. it was like 2 or 3 times more than the vinyl stuff.
