About a year and a half ago I built this for my MLT:
You'll notice that all the parts on this list are 3/8" (barb, pipe, nipple). Anyways, for Christmas, I received a SS false bottom, a larger kettle, weldless fitting (1/2" ball valve, nipple, etc), a march pump (1/2" ports), and a plat chiller (1/2" wort ports). Now, my question is this, am I going to have to swap out my MLT's set up for a 1/2" ball valve, nipples etc, so I can connect my false bottom? Also, I would like to get some quick disconnects, but probably can't with a 3/8" ball valve correct?
I was thinking of these disconnects:
Really hoping I don't have to buy a whole new ball valve assembly, etc.
