Maximizer tubes are used to help extract the maximum amount of wort out of the bottom of your kettle by allowing you to draw liquid from below the height of the valve port. This size is normally used in boil kettles where it will stay out of the way of immersion chillers, and hot liquor tanks where there is no false bottom that could interfere.

The 1/2" MPT threads on this Maximizer will thread in to the FPT threaded ports on the inside of any of our BrewBuilt or Heavy Duty kettles.

Please note that these are too long to work in set ups with our domed false bottoms.

2.5" Long x 1.25" Bend

Tail too long
The tail is a little too long to thread into my kettle.... had to cut off an 1/8 inch to be able to use it.

It’s too long and scrapes my kettle.

almost to the max
This part fit perfectly in my HLT. It is well made. I would have given it 5 stars if the end of the pickup pipe was angled to match the bottom of the kettle. Then it would truly be a maximizer

Essential Kettle Upgrade
Great product - excellent weld quality and 1/2" diameter throughout for high flow rate.

It would be nice to offer a shorter version for the Brewmaster kettles (at least the 18.5 gal). I cut ~3/8" off the tubing, but not everyone would have the tools to work with stainless.

Used with BrewBuilt 10 gal kettly
Added to a 10 gal BrewBuilt kettle and it does what its name says and allows you to get the most out of the kettle.

Maximizer for Boil and Hot liquor Kettle
I bought this to use in a keggle for making a boil kettle. The unit itself would work in flat bottomed pot, but it leaves about 2 gallons of wort in the bottom of a keggle. It is going to be used in the boil kettle and It has a very good throughput. I would recommend this to anyone with a flat bottomed kettle.
