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.

Easy to use / Fair price
I just drilled the proper size hole and screwed it on. I checked for leaks and had converted a plain fermenting bucket into one that won't require siphoning any more when bottling (or can be used as a bottling bucket).

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.

Way easier
Big mouth alone makes it great and spigot makes it even better

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 it be turned to the side so the pail can sit flush on the counter when not in use?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That is no different than putting an elbow on the bucket and attaching the spigot. Be careful with the spigot handle pointing up to the lid to make sure it will be closed. Also you may have to tilt the bucket forwards and towards the open end and help gravity adequately drain the contents since your spigot is now at a 45 deg angle vs. the original 90 deg angle.
Can it be turned to the side when not in use so the bucket can sit flat on the counter or ground?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do it all the time. If you turn it counterclockwise which you generally have to since clockwise will tighten it, be careful it doesn't loosen so much it leaks.
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 you rotate spigot while it's attached so the bucket can rest flush on the counter/floor?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. As long as it is tightly sealed on the interior, you can rotate it to sit on the floor. Cheers.
Can I get replacement gaskets for my existing Spigot?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we do not sell replacement gaskets. Cheers!
Has anyone made a stainless steel screen attachment for these? Seems like that would make sense when racking a wine or beer with oak chips or other solids.
A shopper on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Never tried- I imagine you could rig a stainless steel screen across the opening in the fermenter to help filter out solids though.
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.
