I just purchased a 40 qt. Megapot with a Blichmann 1/2" stainless steel 3-piece Ball Valve.This one here... http://www.austinhomebrew.com/product_info.php?cPath=178_33_82_89&products_id=10044 I forgot to buy, and to be honest I do not know, what part will need to be threaded on the OUTGOING side of the ball valve, i.e inside of the brewpot.

I think that these are the 2 parts that I need....

Stainless Nipple 1/2"... Austin Homebrew Supply

And this.... Stainless Hex Nut 1/2".... Austin Homebrew Supply

Any help is appreciated.

I'm not lucky enough to own one of these kettles but I think I know what you are trying to do. I believe you are on the right track with those parts. Check out these pictures here, they should help clear things up I think.

If you are not welding a coupling into the pot then you need a weldless kit or the parts of one. Look at Bargain Fittings for what you need.
