How do you get this to seal with the stock gasket and screw cap? I tried the gasket on both sides of the disc and it leaks.
Kevin McMullin on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Got this from one of the product designers. "The stock gasket needs to be placed between the tank and metal disc. You must be careful when positioning and tightening, as the stock gasket can slip from lip of the tank"
How do you take the Speidel spigot assembly apart so that you can use the sleeve to attach this dip tube?

BEST ANSWER: The orange spigot will come out of the white plastic piece, it will take a good push. I press the bottom (where the beer comes out) against my counter while rotating the handle. It will pop out, then the whole thing comes apart. I found that you can reassemble the spigot from either direction and it provides a lower or higher position for the drain, check when you reassemble which way you want it.
Is a dip tub less prone to clogging?
Andrew Q on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will depend on how much debris such as hops, are in the fermentor. Cold crashing will help you achieve a very clean and clear beer.

good idea, not well executed
The dip tube itself is decent quality, but a better sealing system needs to be worked out.
The speidel seals are relatively narrow, and are usually held in correct position by the cap or spigot assembly. This provides nothing to keep the seal positioned properly, and hence it's very hard to get it to actually create a seal.
In order for this item to actually be useable, i will need to develop my own seal, as I could not get the factory one to work, and wouldn't have been confident in putting 120L of liquid in my fermenter even if I had magically gotten it to line up perfect.

Not ready for primetime IMHO, purchase with the knowledge you may have to do some work to get it useable. I had read previous reviews, and was willing to take a chance, No doubt I can figure out a seal easier than I could fabricate the actual dip tube, but this is not turnkey, and hence the middle of the road rating.

I haven’t used it yet, but it’s high quality.

Leaky
It's a great idea conceptually, but in practice, it is VERY difficult to keep the stock gasket seated tightly between the metal disc and the rim of the fermenter outlet. The result is a very IFFY connection that is prone to serious leaks.
