Like john said, just thread the fittings together the once, and you're good.

I'm going for a build once my tuns are done up nice - probably next few months - let me know how you end up fitting these things :)

I just bought two 30-gallon O2 containers that are being refurbed for brewing purposes. Once I've figured out the fittings situation and bought a 120-quart cooler, I should be good to go for 20-gallon brewing.

Richard, if I can't find a 3/4" to 1/2" reducer, I might just get a 3/4" thread with a hose barb.

good find Jeff.  I'll see what thread type they are when they come in, and if they are NTP type, we now know where to get the reducers.

I might have missed it in the specs. Was there a temp limit?
