RE: [new_distillers] aluminium kegs and crap like that.
- If you are in the US a national plumbing supply company such as Ferguson
will have a female/bolt on flange you can mount to the boiler. It will by
female to accept the column and the have a flange with bolt holes to attach
to the boiler. I would assume that a plumbing supply shop could order you
one regardless of where you live. I paid about $25 US for one. I also
bought a couple of unions and installed one above the flange and another
below the still head/condensor tee. This allows me to break the column down

The simplest connection would be one that is easily connected and disconnected.
I recall some discussion re a union from the dairy industry/cow milking
machines. Brewhaus (Calgary) showed one in their on-line catalogue the last
time I looked.
