I'm about to put together a plastic conical fermentator I'm getting from US Plastics. My idea is to bring the drain valve out horizontally. To do so I'll use a 2" nipple, 2" elbow, 2 to 1" reducer, 1" nipple, 1" ss ball valve, and a 1 to 1/2" barbed fitting. The parts in between the tank and the valve are polypropylene.
My concern is this: Will the wort find its way into the threads and create contamination problems? I don't want to have to take this apart each time to clean and sanitize. Is there a better way? I need to make the 90 degree turn due to height restriction in ferminator.
