Blichmann's 1/2" NPT Hex Nipple is made for use with their line of BoilerMaker drain valves and conical fermentors, and is made from high-quality 304 stainless steel. Much nicer to work with than a standard plumbing Close Nipple, because the Hex Nipple has 7/8" hex in the middle. Use a wrench to tighten it without scarring or damaging the threads.
Perfect for Blichmann 1/2" ball valves and Fermenator conical fermenters! The 1/2" NPT standard threading works with a myriad of brewing equipment, including Blichmann QuickConnectors!
