Your idea is doable, but your going to need you glassblowing friend for help.
This design you uploaded:
Will need some pretty complex re-shaping to get it done right. What I would suggest for a valve is to have him fit in a glass stopcock which can be easily fitted into the distillate holding section. like this one -Glass Stopcock for Burette... http://www.alibaba. com/showroom/ Glass_Stopcock. html
Should work just fine.

It all seem like a hellish waste of a good glass carboy to me. If you wanna get things REALLY cookin', why not adapt something like this?...
