I just used a 1/2" brass tee on top (to allow for a thermowell) and a 1/2" male copper fitting on the underside. I then put a short length of 1/2" silicone hose on the end of the copper fitting.

Fixed.

No need to look even during the sparge when batch sparging.

Total cost is something like 20 bucks (if that).
What is the white thing at the end?
