A homebrewer kindly donated me a 9 inch false bottom. But minus the fittings. So what is everyone using to connect theres up.

on mine i use a couple of different setups depending on what vessel im using, goes something like this , either a male female coupler , male end down through the hole and a nut to secure it to the fb , then an elbow and a hose tail. Or if im using the flat bottom pot , a street elbow , male side into the hole then a nut to secure it and a hosetail into the female end. All depends on the height of your outlet tbo.
