The owner/manager of a local plumbing supply gave me all the hardware I needed to adapt from 3/8" soft copper to garden hose for my IC as well as the ball valves needed for my MLT and boil kettle.

Just wanted a six pack of beer. Thought it was interesting and I've invited him over on brewday whenever he wants.
