So I ordered a Tri Clover 1/1.5" to 1/4" MFL fitting from brewershardware with the intention of placing it on my racking port and threading a standard 1/4" nut & barb to beverage line and a liquid in ball QD to allow me to rack from conical to keg without exposing the beer to oxygen.
However when I got the piece my 1/4" nut won't fit, and measuring the threads showed 7/16". So I went down to my LHBS to see if I could find a step down, or alternate nut. They did have a 1/4" MFL to 1/4" M fitting shown below.
The only problem was that since it was a M to M connection, I couldn't simply attach it to the TC fitting. The only Female to Female fitting the LHBS had was brass, which they said would be fine but I'm dubious. As it was only $1 I grabbed it, but I'm not sure it's safe to use in finished beer as I think Brass can have a allowable amount of lead?
Here's that the total fitting looks like when loosely dry fitted.
If I shouldn't use the brass female to female connection, does anyone have suggestions on where I could get a SS one, or an alternate way to hook up my tri clover to beer line?
