2" MPT to 1" slip joint reducer, then a short piece of 1" PVC pipe to a 1" slip joint PVC ball valve. I am going to replace this assembly with threaded fittings for ease of cleaning and add a trub/yeast catcher. Got everything at Lowes and I believe it was < $10. For the racking arm I used a SS bulkhead fitting from bargainfittings.com, a 1/2" SS ball valve, a couple of short pieces of 1/2" PVC pipe with a 1/2" FPT to 1/2" slip joint adapter and a PVC 1/2" 90 degree fitting.
