I have a brew kettle I would rather not drill any holes in. I want to run the pick up tube up the inner wall to the top. I need a heat tolerant part similar to this: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/racking-cane-holder.html.

Anyone have an idea?

In the past I have used a crocodile clip intended for clamping or holding parts. You can find them at hardware stores and home centers. I doubt they're rated for extended exposure to boiling liquids, but there shouldn't be a problem while clipped to the top of the kettle and siphoning hot wort, for example.

Hi George

I could use a SS hose clamp to attach the copper pick up tube. I will have to remove the plastic parts and find a way to keep it from rusting.

If you're worried about the plastic insulation, merely remove it (it's heat-shrink plastic that will slide off with a little effort): http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1-Pair-30-Amp-Test-Clips-Black-And-Red-Insulation -/400183228476?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5d2cc7783c
