The threading diameter of the spigot is 2.02 cm / 25.5/32" (edge to edge on the outside of the threading). It is custom designed for our dispensers and it is unlikely to work on another type of dispenser. The spigot must screw into a base snugly as there is no interior nut and washer. It should be cleaned and lubricated with olive oil before first use.
Care Instructions: Should be cleaned and then lubricated with olive oil before first use. To clean, flush the spigot after each use with warm water and baking soda or dilute vinegar; a brush may be required to remove organic matter.
Using a spigot acts as a faucet or tap for your kombucha vessel, meaning you can easily draw out your first fermentation kombucha without having to touch the SCOBY or remove the cloth covering! Just open the tap, and pour kombucha straight into your fermentation bottles or a glass.
Your spigot may become clogged with yeast strands or pieces of SCOBY. If that happens, simply unclog it gently with a bottle brush or q-tip. If the spigot is still clogged, empty the vessel and remove the spigot in order to remove all the gunk.
A great upgrade! Sturdier constuction, longer lived and seals closed better than the plastic spigot that comes with the Speidel plastic fermenters. Includes the base with 1/2" FPT, 1/2" MPT 304 stainless steel spigot, and plastic threaded collar.

Each Great American Rain Barrel comes with one threaded plastic spigot. If you would like an additional or replacement spigot for your Great American Rain Barrel please purchase below. Spigot is threaded for hose attachment. Washers and nut included.
Of all the places to save a few pennies when buying a spigot, on the material the spigot is made out of might be the absolute worst. Rain barrel spigots can be made of plenty of materials but they mostly come in plastic or metal and the arguments against which is best are ongoing. Ultimately, this will come down to personal choice.
Now this is just a nice to have. A lot of installations suggest wrapping the thread for the spigot in thread tape to prevent leakages. While this can be purchased entirely separately, some kits come with the thread tape included which is just an added bonus.
Store and dispense media, solutions, and sterile water with these carboys fitted with spigots. Tough, rigid, and excellent chemical resistance make this carboy a good choice for dispensing stock solutions.
This plastic bottling spigot from the Vintage Shop is our favorite spigot for use with our bottling buckets if you use 1/2" inner diameter (large) siphon tubing. Comes with a gasket to help prevent leakage.
Note: Our home has a galvanized piping system. The parts and installation techniques shown in the step-by-step photos are the same for copper plumbing. If you have a CPVC plastic system, however, the parts will look similar to those shown in Figure B (below).
The frost-proof feature works by shutting off water flow back at the stem bottom (inside a heated space). The anti-siphon feature is built into the water spigot. Install the sill cock through a wall with a slight downward pitch to allow any remaining water to drain out through the water spigot.
Bore a 1-1/8 in. hole (if the hole needs enlarging) for the new sill cock using a masonry hole saw. Dry-fit the sill cock in an upright position tight against the wall and mark the location of the fastening holes. Drill two 1/4-in. holes with a masonry drill bit and push the plastic screw anchors in flush to the wall. Apply a thick bead of clear silicone around the back of the sill cock flange, push it against the wall and fasten it with two 1-1/4 in. No. 8 roundhead brass screws.
If you have a CPVC supply system (as shown above in Figure B), omit the dielectric fitting, buy a plastic shutoff valve (with drain) and solvent-weld the pipe and fittings together. Position the valve so that its water flow direction arrow points toward the outside wall.

At one point or another, you are going to have to replace an outside hose spigot. Luckily, this project requires just a few simple tools and a bit of gumption. You should be able to knock this out in no time at all.
It happens to me every fall. The sky is a cold cloudy dark swirl, with winds whipping through the landscape that will clear the overcast sky at night letting all that heat escape into the atmosphere, thereby dropping temperatures below freezing. My fingers are nearly numb, as my body, now acclimated to the warmth of summer, struggles to switch into winter mode! Grasping the icy metal hose connection threaded onto the spigot, I twist only to find it will not budge. Over and over again I try, with no luck. The cold turns painful as my hands turn redder by the second.
I hit the connection with penetrating oil. Then give it a couple of firm taps with the pliers. Still nothing. Suddenly, my son bursts from the house holding those beautiful blue-handled Channellock pliers! The hose is saved. The tongue and groove pliers create the perfect bite, and allow me to twist carefully, but with more force than the pliers. With a few twists, the hose is off the spigot, but after all that, the fitting is damaged beyond repair. All that work for a ruined hose.
Why hose connections fuse is based on the metal fitting connectors and water. Most low-cost hoses have aluminum fittings. And most spigots are brass. These are two dissimilar metals that will physically fuse when water is introduced and flows through the point of connection.
The moral of the story is? It is summertime, right? And it is dry, which means you are using your hose a lot! It also means it is important to disconnect that hose from the spigot and any watering nozzles to prevent them from fusing.
The Ported Fermonster is a brand new fermenter designed specifically for fermentation. Keg Factory gave product feedback for over 2 years of development and we think they nailed the design. The large lid allows for easy filling and makes hop or oak additions a breeze. The smooth sides are fantastic for sanitization - no ribs or texture to collect yeast or bacteria. The large 7 gallon size was designed to provide ample space for fermentation and you'll find the molded in volume markers super handy for accurate filling. The punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center. Because they are made from virgin PET plastic they nearly unbreakable and a lot safer than similar glass carboys. Also notice the conical top which reduces surface area if you plan to store beer or wine long term.
Made from heavy PET plastic, the same material used in 2 L soda bottles, which is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration. Due to the thickness of the material and the overall geometry the Fermonster does not require ribs or dimples for stability. That results in a super smooth interior surface that reduces yeast and sediment buildup making it the easiest to clean, most sanitary PET carboy on the market. The huge 4" opening makes filling a breeze, and cleanup is as easy as wiping down the inside. The 7 gallon volume is a monster of a fermenter, reducing blowoff issues seen with standard 5 and 6 gallon carboys. Fermonsters are easily moved by hand or consider using our Carboy Carrier for even greater ease of use. 041b061a72
