Nice writeup Brad..

I've basically gone with 1/2" Ball Lock QD's on the hot side up to my plate Chiller, and from the plate chiller to the bottom of my conical, it's Triclover.

The nice part of the ball locks and TriClovers is that neither is proprietary and are fairly close to "industry standard" which is nice when you have 4 different brands and a bunch of homemade gear.

Only TC's I'm looking at on the hot side are possibly switching my boil element to a 2" TC adaptor, just so I'm not wrestling the power cable while trying to clean up from a messy IPA.
