Right. I have a 36qt Coleman Xtreme cooler on order. Tonight I picked up some 15mm copper pipe and some push joint fittings, which should mean I dont have do attempt any soldering. Only thing I'm in need of now is the ball valve and washers etc.
I have it all almost straight in my head, but am not the most hands on person and I just thought - do you guys just run a clear tube (like on the auto-syphon) from the ball valve to take the runnings from the tun? I was thinking I could attach a length of this pipe and buy a litlle tap for the end to control the run off... or, is this what the ball valve does? Is the handle part of the valve what I use to turn the flow off or on?
I'm sure this will sound stupid, but as I said, I haven't been the most practical of people in the past, but I'm gonna change that now - with some help!
