So since I take both my kettle and my MLT off of my stand for cleaning I wanted to make disconnecting everything as easy as possible. One of my main concerns was with the pressure sensors that go to the BrewTroller on each vessel. I didn't want to mount the pressure sensors to the vessel itself to keep them away from the heat and steam.

So I picked up some parts

So from left to right we have

1/8" Compact coupling with 1/8" Barb - Mcmaster Part number 53465K62
1/8" Compact Coupling to 1/8" NPT - Mcmaster Part number 53465K22
1/8" NPT to 1/4" NPT coupling
1/4" NPT to 1/8" Barb

Now the last two on the right came from lowes only because I forgot to order them from mcmaster, it wasn't worth the shipping to just order the 1/8" NPT to 1/8" barb.

So then I drilled a hole in the bottom skirt of my keg to install the adapter.

So the male barb adapter goes through the skirt and the coupler screws onto the inside.

So now i'll be able to mount all my pressure sensors onto the wall and just have tubes running to each vessel.
