So I am ordering a Conical Saturday morning - couple of questions.
Price between the 7 and 14.5 makes the 14.5 a no brainer, and the triclover clamps look like what you get when you have to out do your brew buddies.
So what else do I need to gear up for this mainly with regards to transfers and cooling. I am having this sent down in a container, and hunting for stuff here is an all day affair and its not just a 2 day UPS trip away and clearly I will want to get this thing up an running the minute it gets here, so I am trying to piece all the Misc hardware together.
Putting it in a fridge is not an option for me, too much mold. So thinking a cooling loop either internal or external? Suggestions?
So as of now I have a 1/2 barb / 1/2 NPT coming from the ball valve on my boil kettle.
I will get the March Pump 809, which has 1/2 NPT male as I understand, but requires buying the couplers which would make it 1/2 NPT Female on both ends.
What are the connections on the conical, it looks like it just ships with the ball valves and female 1/2 NPT fittings right??? I do not see this spec anywhere?
This seems to be the scoop on Quick Disconnects

Straight Through Coolant Hose Coupling Sleeve-Lck Sckt X Barb for 1/2" Hose ID, 3/8" Cplg Sz

Which I will want to use, I will have the sketch up the options to see what is the best deal/most flexible. Is there a reason I do not want QD's on the Fermentor?
High temp tubing from kettle to pump to chiller than normal siphon line to the fermenter seems reasonable right?
Thanks in advance...
