I would not put an anode rod in an Aluminum tank. I think that is a bad mix of metals.

Thanks to all. Went with the brass plug due to the OME plug cross threading. Not really worried about any reaction from mixing the 2 metals.

What size was the tap for threading in the nylon plug?

Should be 1/2" NPT, I think.

For a drain, here's an easy option. I just put a 1/2" Nylon nipple in, and put a hose with 1/2" x 3/8" fittings I think, and pex stop valve on the end. Makes draining easy. Hose is just one of those like under kitchen or bath sink in your home, so it'll handle the hot water. I still remove all this every now and then to rinse the tank out with a tank rinser, but the drain hose makes things too easy, especially since I drain it every trip, in the shop, into a bucket.
