This product works great

This product works just great, but there are some things that you need to be aware in order to utilize it properly in the construction of a homebrewing mash tun. As pictured is precisely how it is delivered. This item, in my opinion, is absolutely perfect for a hot lauter tun or brew kettle that you intend to add a weldless spigot to, without any further connections.
If, however, you plan to use this in the assembly of a cooler mash tun build, realize that there will not be anything left to connect to on the inside of the Mash tun. The included washers and gaskets will provide a remarkable seal, however there will be no threading left to connect a false bottom adapter to. I had to forgoe a nut and gasket in order to have enough threading available to attach my false bottom adapter, but was still able to achieve a leak free installation.
The threading on this, by the way, is male NPT threading. If you're placing this in a bulkhead, perfect. If not, know that you will likely have to switch out the NPT adapter on the Amazon suggeted false bottom adapter hose to a female one for these male threads to go into. Giggity.
