bottling spigot
love it; back to brewing as I broke the last one!!!

Commence bottling!
For the price, it is a good spigot. I drilled a whole into an old plastic fermenter to make my bottling bucket and it worked great! The washers are thick, pliable and made a good seal. I use a bottle filler so its a non-issue but I noted the flow was not proportionate with the handle position meaning that the beer did not begin to flow until the handle position was nearly half open.

Bought this to install on brewing bucket
Bought this to install on a brewing bucket that did not have a pre drilled hole or a spigot. Makes transferring from fermenting bucket to secondary or bottling bucket or keg a lot easier. Also stops a lot of unnecessary air to my brew. MMMMM. BEEEEERRRR.

Take care of it, IT will take care of you
Spigot was part of the Essential Brewing Starter Kit. After bottling a few 5 gallon extract batches, I learned to assemble the bottling bucket with the spigot in the horizontal position to avoid damaging the nozzle when placing on the floor after sanitizing, but prior to racking. This spigot can be fully taken apart (the internal stopper barrel from the main housing) for proper cleaning and sanitizing. I found it important to completely disassemble, clean and dry all the parts (both gaskets, nut, internal barrel and main housing) to prevent any potential contaminants for being in contact with the fermented beer. I've heard of others having infected batches possibly due to a dirty spigot that had never been removed from the bucket nor disassembled or cleaned. Take the extra few moments to ensure all the equipment that will be in contact with cooled wort or finished beer is clean and sanitized. Overall, this spigot does it's job very well and for the low cost, it's worth having (02) two on hand just incase one goes down for whatever reason.

why is there a small weep hole in the front of this spigot? beer shoots out of it when opening or closing. thanks.
Rufus S on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The small hole in the front is meant to allow for pressure release. Beer should not shoot out of it, however. If this is causing problems for you, please contact us and we can work on a resolution for you.
Can this be used to convert the older plastic Big Mouth Bubblers to the convenient spigot version?
B A on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes I converted both my Big Mouth bubblers to the spigot using a 1" hole saw centered 2-1/4" up from btm to drill the hole on the smooth flat part where the volume measurements are. Works great no leaks and drains with little to no trub.
Can this be used to retro a 5 gal. Cooler opposed to a SS or Brass ball valve? I guess I see you wouldn't be able to attach a filter for the grain bed would be the biggest problem.
S A on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The bulkhead on this spigot is not sufficient for use in a cooler.
