I just ran across this and thought it would be a prefect upgrade. It requires converting your 1" thread to a tri-clamp ferrule but that in itself would be a nice upgrade. They come in .5L and 1L all the way up to 20L sizes. $65 for the .5L as of writing this, $69 for 1L.

Very Nice :-)

Love the clarity of your beer. I wonder how do you do that.
My homebrews are always cloudy no matter what. I really don't mind but wife and friends do prefer clear beers. Right now i only bottle them, can't go keg yet.
Cheers to you!

Love the yeast catcher idea. I went to pick up parts at Lowe's, and the only 1-1/2" to 4" adapter I could find was DWV rated, which is not for potable water. Biggest pipe I could get that was NSF-PW (potable water rated) was 2", and I couldn't even find all the right fittings at that size. Any idea if you used the NSF-PW or the DWV? If you used DWV, does anyone know where to find similar 4" fittings that are NSF-PW rated?

If I remember correctly, I bought some of the parts from Lowes and some of the parts from Home depot! All items were potable rated.
