Any luck with soldering SS to copper?
I've done a lot of soldering SS to SS but not SS to copper. I don't it's an issue though as long as you have the right flux. Plumber's paste flux will not work. You need the all-purpose liquid flux that specifically says it will work for SS. It works with copper too.
As far as the final connection goes, I think a 3/4 compression fitting will mate to a 1/2 copper pipe. It should be easy to find a FPT to compression fitting in 3/4 inch. Either way, I try to hard pipe it rather than use a barb/flex if I could.
