anyone have a good way to make a dip tube that ends in a 1/2" male NPT?
How big of a dip tube do you want? 3/8" or 1/2" ?
When I used a dip tube I used 3/8" soft copper. I used a 1/2" male NPT to 3/8" compression fitting. Total was like 5 bucks cause my local hardware store will sell soft copper by the foot.
You can do a 1/2" male to 5/8" compression fitting. This will allow you to use standard 1/2" copper pipe. You can sweat an elbow on the end and a small piece so the pickup goes all the way to the bottom.
I like the compression fittings at the coupler so the tube can be made to pickup more wort (almost nothing left) and still be removeable.
