I'm getting 15.5 Gal keg with two 1/2 inch Full stainless couplers already welded. It's going to be a boil kettle as I gather items for AG.
The first port will be for a sight tube that I intend to order from
That seems to be stright forward.
The other port will have a hopstopper
which seems to screw right in.
I'm going to indulge a little here and spring for this Blichmann
I'm assuming that I need either this...
Full-Thread Pipe Nipple.
1/2" NPT, fully threaded the entire length. 1.125" long.
1.5" Pipe Nipple.
1/2" NPT, this nipple is 1.5" long
to connect the ball valve to the keg coupling, right?
If I want to use the quick connects listed at the top of this link to hook up to a Shirron Plate Ciller...
I would also need one of the 2 previously listed pipe nipples to connect to the outlet of the ball valve, correct?
Finally, Hose... 1/2 or 3/8ths?
