Default Want to add ball valve to kettle *Milwaukee help?*

Hey lads,

Before I order anything, I want to make sure I'm ordering the right thing. I have a 10.5 gallon polar ware stainless kettle.

I want to add a stainless ball valve with hose barb, and in the inside I want a whirlpool/side pickup. This will allow me to not have to pickup my kettle and dump in the fermenter, and I should be able to leave most of the trub behind with a decent (manual) whirlpool.

Hopefully I can link, but this is what I was going to order:

AND

http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=151

I have no idea how to drill a hole in my kettle, I need a step bit? Anyone from Milwaukee area want to install this for me, I'll provide beer

My goal is to eventually modify my 50foot 3/8" IC and setup a recirculation/whirlpool fixture on it with a pump, but for now I want to get a ball valve and pickup installed.

Any advice or help is appreciated

Justin
