It was a 1" copper pipe to tube adapter that I cut the tube part off of and soldered directly to the 1.5" tee. The main body is 1.5". The In/Out flow is 3/4" tube with 1/2" NPT ends, the probe part is 1/2" tube with 1/2" NPT and a 1/2" to 1/4" bushing for the probe.

Thought I'd post some pictures from the last brew day. I'm back using the 5 gallon system since I broke down the 10 gallon to solder in couplers. Enjoy the dank dark basement where magic happens. Pictures are out of order, but whatever i'm lazy.

Looking good, man! You may be anti-bling but you've basically got all the capabilities of the much more expensive setups!

Thanks steve, just keeping it real, holding it down, stayin fresh...

Anyway the updated version of the ten gallon will be a little blingier, but the changes were made with ease of operation in mind, not appearance. Can't wait to show her off, I need to get busy.

It's my keg/carboy washer that I run with my Little Giant pump. Makes cleaning sankes, corny's, and carboys a breeze.

And, it doubles as a bidet!

Ahh, I already have a keg washer, but the bidet might come in handy

I FINALLY got the stand most of the way built. It still needs a sheet of plywood on the bottom deck, I need to buy the casters and I'm going to add a little fold down shelf on the end.
