Default 3/8" vs 1/2" hose barb adapter for Mash tun ball valve?

Is there any material difference between these two sizes? Is there a benefit to having a slower/faster flow from the mash tun?

Generally you don't want to just open up the valve on your mash tun anytime. Its the only place I use 3/8".
