Default O-ring size for 1/4" NPT nipple?

Can't seem to figure it out googling. Anyone got the dash number?

NPT fittings do not typically utilize o-rings. Thread sealing tape or pipe dope is used for sealing the tapered pipe threads.

I understand, but they are often used in brewing in bulkhead applications with a locknut and o-ring. 1/2" is common, but looking for 1/4".
