Actually, the place I'm getting the chillers from sells the straight tubing as well. Are you thinking stainless soldering?

Or just find a food grade cap. If it comes down to it, stick the end in a vice and crank it down. Can you put a tee at the bottom port in the picture you provided and install it there?

I was thinking of installing it from the top, the cover of the drum. I figured the cooling source would be at the top and I could measure from the top as well. If I measure form the bottom, the wort at the top might be a lot warmer.

A stainless cap would be ideal, I think. I haven't come across any yet, but I'll be looking.

Uniseals also, come in all sizes.......
n expensive bulkhead when you can use a Uniseal®? Just drill a hole in the pipe, tank or bucket, insert a Uniseal®, then put some window cleaner on the end of the pipe and push it in. It's that easy!

Feel like rubber, but they are made of DuPont Alcryn® rated to 40 psi and warranted for 25 years. They are immune to cold, will not harden and hold pressure and vacuum. The sizes below correspond to standard Schedule 40 PVC pipe. Fit tank wall thicknesses up to 1/2". Made in USA.

I'm not sure if your still interested but I recently came into a large stash of stainless compression fittings. They are very high quality parker and hoke brands, used in pharmaceutical manufacturing. These are part of an auction purchase I made. I have most sizes from 1/8" - 3/4" compression x 1/4" - 3/4" mpt, fpt, flare - tees with 2x compression & 1xmpt - lots of stuff. I also have some triclamp stuff. I'm planning on selling all of it on either ebay or amazon but have not gotten around to it yet. Let me know if you are looking for a particular

I forgot about those. I ordered some of these when I was building my reef tank for the overflow.
