I have mine mounted in a "T" at the output of the chiller.

Nice Wayne!

How did you make the sight glass?

TIA, Tom

I purchased most of the parts from bargain fittings.com

The sight glass is plastic

Important note: max temp on those is 140 deg F. But still AMAZING AWESOME and wayyyy cheaper than a fancy glass one. Thanks a million for the link!

The PVC sight glass will melt with higher temps. I tried keeping it in line while I was using my CFC to cool while whirlpooling in my kettle. I now have a new one and a spare.

It serves it's purpose well to monitor the wort flow from my CFC chiller to my fermenter and to give me an idea about the flow of 02 entering the line.

All in all, well worth the money.
