Let me know how you build that chiller :-)

This is pretty sweet, I'll have to do some further investigation.

Not that I have room for any of it...

Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks.
If you looking i have the ability to get some SS valves/fittings.

I have the same conical with a ball valve, I wouldn't go that route again. For a very similar if not cheaper price I would put tri-clamp (npt to tri) out the bottom, then a tri-clamp butterfly valve. This mimics the ball valve in a whole lot more sanitary manner (i'm not a big fan of whatever grows in that ball). For yeast and trub collection I would just add a sight glass with an end cap. Now you can see when to dump the trub/yeast!

I plan on changing out my ball valve for this setup sometime soon.

I've got one with tri-clamps and butterfly valve. I really like it, but I need a collector. Great thought on the sight glass, but you'll need a 2" size and those are $155. I'm thinking the PVC collector here isn't quite that high dollar.
