    I don't think it has to be stainless steel, but if you really want that then ...

    ... or push the boat out with one of these ...

    My only comment is that the stainless steel taps shown above have very small "shoulders" so it would be very difficult to seal them against the outside of a stainless steel pot.

    In view of this, maybe one of these would be better ...

    ... or if you needed fine flow control then one of these ...

    Either way, they both have wide shoulders on the threaded end of the taps so sealing it against the pot should be relatively easy with the correct washer.

    You could even modify the inside of the tap to fit a filter attachment similar to the one I have on my mash tun.

    Hope this helps. :thumb:
