I couldn't find a brass fitting (tee, reducer) to match the same thread pitch. The ones I found were more a hose type thread. I saw a lot of MIP type threads, but no NTP's.

Does Lowes/HD have a 3/4" tap this size? Is it a common one?
NPT (national pipe thread) is what you need, yes any big box store should have the plugs and taps.
