Spigot will allow tipping of the fermentor to maximize yield when kegging.

better than the plastic spigot
Leslie W on Feb 23, 2021
I have been using the previous version of the metal valve. One has failed, but I thing they are more reliable than plastic. This looks like an improvement.
Mike S on Feb 12, 2021
plastic leaks
David B A on Jan 28, 2021
should be a little more sturdy than the plastic one
W. Adam S on Jan 22, 2021
Because the plastic ones leak if there is any backflow.
Kenneth S on Jan 5, 2021
To make it easier to rack and be more leakproof that standard spigot

to replace a leaking plastic spigot-- plastic ones leak
Leslie W on Aug 5, 2020
Because the plastic ones leak, and the stainless steel ones don't when there is backflow presser.

What size ID silicone tubing should be used with the NEW version of this spigot? 3/8" no longer fits - it is too small.
Ryan T Imondi on Nov 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ryan, we still recommend using 3/8'' tubing. If the tubing is too small and spigot is too large it's always helpful to soak the tip of the tubing in warm water to soften it up. If the tubing is too large and the spout is too small, you should secure the tubing with a hose clamp. Alternatively, I have heard of customers using 1/2'' tubing on this spigot.
Do you know what the thread pattern is inside the smaller orange plastic piece (as seen in the second photo in the product description)? I tried a 1/2" MPT fitting, which is just slightly too wide.
David Carpenter on Jun 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the threads on these don't seem to be one of the standards that we are used to. I have one of these that works with 1/2" MPT but another that doesn't. Seems like a 1/2" BSPP is going to be closer to what these are designed for but still doesn't create a perfect fit. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Does this come with the gasket?
Stephen Miller on Jan 12, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Stephen, mine did. Great little spigot, never had any problems with leaking and easy to clean.
-Beth
Is this actually stainless steel or chrome plated?
Lance Parsons on Jan 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Lance - The spigot is made from 304 stainless steel.

I hope this becomes standard
I had problems with both the original plastic Speidel valves and the first-generation (chromed steel) metal ones. These stainless steel valves are smooth and secure - and look like they will last forever.

Solid, well made
The stock taps, chrome or plastic, both leak. This is solid and well made and as good as the 1/2 inch ball valve I usually use but doesn’t stick out so far which is nice.

Peace of mind
My only concern with the Speidel plastic fermenters has been the cheap plastic spigots. I fear disaster should one inadvertently break off or otherwise get damaged. These stainless steel replacements are much more robust andless likely to create disasters. Excellent ddition.

This stinless steel spigot does not leak, The plastic spigots provided with the fermenters do leak, which is a pain when they are full of wine.
