Most people use a ball valve but I don't see why that valve would not work.

Maybe it would get clogged with grain bits but I doubt it.

Thanks, I'm going to try it out tonight, I put a hose barb on the end and it flows pretty well

Any issues would most likely be on the inside of the cooler rather than outside.

Might want to pickle that brass first. I know brass is cheap, but SS ball valves can be had pretty cheap and don't need to be pickled, easier to open/close and less likely to leak.
