Swapped out my HDPE drain valve and QD parts for stainless. So ive got

1-1/2" ball valve
2- Female Cam Lock x 1-1/2" MPT2
2- Male Cam Lock x 1-1/2" MPT
1- Male Cam Lock x 1-1/2" FPT
bushings to reduce the FPT camlock down to 1/2" FPT

So what you get is a female cam lock (MPT threads) that threads into the bottom of the fermenter, and allows you to take the valve off with a QD. After the valve is another cam lock so you can quickly add a 1/2" hose to rack. I also have another make cam lock fitting that i never used, was planning to attach this to a yeast catcher.

The stuff is lightly used, probably 6 months old. Its worth about $65 new.

Id like to get $50 plus shipping.

I am interested.. this route is somewhat new to me (using the very bottom port for beer transfer AND trub dump. Well I am also new to building conicals). So if I am looking at a 3 week total fermentation time I would use the 1 1/2 to dump trub after primary ferm. And slightly dump every once in a while before transfer and the transfer would be fairly clear from the 1/2" tubing to my keg?
