I am looking at buying the 30-plate chiller from DudaDiesel with 1/2" male NPT connectors all around.  However, I can't find a garden hose adapter for it.  I have found the hose barb adapters at www.bargainfittings.com  but they don't carry the garden hose adapter.  Any ideas?

Like this?  http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ1xhc/R-100161654/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

Forgot to add that I also use a valve for the water, a valve for the hot wort and a thermometer on the output so I can dial in the temperature.

Hmm, yes though I think I'd prefer SS or brass.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I think HD and Lowes and Ace probably have something, but if not you could get these:
http://fittingsandadapters.com/garhosad.html they have both male and female garden hose to female 1/2" NPT

We were just out in Virginia for Christmas. We really liked the Devil's Backbone Brewpub and Blue Mountain.
