Why not? Add a SS nut and an o-ring (maybe a washer too) and it's just like a weldless bulkhead assembly for a ball valve.

I doubt you would have enough threads to go through the lid, an o-ring, and have room left to thread on a nut. If you want to try it M14 2.0 is the thread pitch. I just checked one. Even if it did fit the valve doesn't seal on itself. It seals on the bottom of the bung its threaded into.

That relief valve you linked is not going to work by just threading it into a nut. Picture a cup welded to the top of the lid. Drill a hole through the bottom of that cup and the lid. Now imagine the rim of that cup is threaded for the threaded part of what you linked. The tip of it covers the hole, the spring keeps it tightly sealed. Excessive pressure, or pulling on the ring, unseats the seal allowing pressure to release.

You can drill a hole and install one of these in your lid. http://www.brewbrothers.biz/Pressure-Relief-Valve-Assy

Here's another one from AHS if that's more convenient for you: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=12537

And I wasn't implying the one I linked before as the only option, nor the best option. I'm sure it could be made to work with some additional parts, but why bother with the full valve asm!
