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.

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.
