Want a more reliable valve for my fermenter

want to be able to connect tube to the spigot. Plus the other spigot aerates the liquid.

Seemed like a necessary upgrade to fit common tubing

Chrome Spigot for Speidel Plastic Fermenters
AKBeerMan 02/13/18

I bought 6 of these to attach to fermenters which are used as "casks for real ale". They work great and I recommend them if you use the fermenters as casks (See my review of 20/30L fermenters of this date). They don't leak even after months of storing beer in them.

They are not worth the money if you are going to use them with fermenters that are strictly fermenters. At least I wouldn't buy them because you don't need them on a fermenter.

SO REMEMBER! There are 2 reviews here. Use with cask and use with fermenter.

Wish they included this with the original purchase. easier attachment of lines. On off valve is better since it sticks out when open.

Worth the upgrade....
I purchased this spigot at the same time I got my 30L Speidel. I think it is an excellent upgrade and I have never used the original orange plastic spigot (NW10). The chrome spigot has worked perfectly for me and I now have 9 or 10 batches through my Speidel.
I see there are some mixed reviews here about it, with the main complaint being that 3/8" tubing is loose and slips off. Simple fix, use the vinyl tubing not the silicon. My 3/8" silicon tubing is also loose and will slip off. It is also a little pricey, so I reserve it for my hot side transfers on brew day. But 3/8" vinyl tubing, at least the stuff I have (and it is marked 3/8" ID 1/2" OD) is tight on the bottom part of the spigot. No clamps needed. It is even a little hard to get on the spigot itself because it so tight. Once it is on it never comes off until I take it off. Hope this tip is a help to others who are having trouble.

Does not come apart
The black handle can be unscrewed from the spigot, but the rest of the parts are welded, glued, or assembled in some other way so that they do not come apart. Without being able to clean these parts individually, I am nervous about infecting my beer due to old residue or bacteria and yeast sticking around. I've experienced sanitation problems in my Speidel fermenter that haven't manifested in my other fermenters (without spigots), so now I'm looking for another type of dispenser that's easier to clean thoroughly.

Nice upgrade but...
I have 2 Speidel fermenters and I purchased one of these to try out. The chrome spigot is a nice upgrade from the plastic ones. The only issue that I have is that the hose bard is neither long enough or wide enough. I use the silicon hoses and they slip off the chrome bard very easily... sometimes you have to literally hold it on the bard while you transfer beer from the fermenter. The standard plastic hoses might work better with this.

Don't buy it
After one use the chrome plating is coming off and the screw that holds the lever to the spigot is rusted. I will be returning this product to the store and contacting the fermenter company directly. For the amount of money I paid for it I expected it to last a little bit longer than one use. I really hope this is not ruined the 30 gallons of beer I have brewed with this product

Everything works, but it won't fit my world...
I love everything Speidel makes, (and I always have at least 2 fermenters bubbling), so I bought this for my 3.5 gallon transport tank. The short "schnozzle" isn't big enough to take a 1/2" ID silicone tube, so I use the 3/8" with a spiral hose clamp. I use it to bottle one or two swing tops, then fill the kegs. I have had two catastrophes, where the tube slides off while I am busy doing EVERYTHING AT ONCE. I think the NW10 (Orange Plastic) one fits my system better. I am a machinist, so I could make an extension, but I wanted my friends to know that (for me), the Orange one works well...

Faucet spigot isn't long enough
I've used these spigots three times now to transfer into a keg and all three times the hose has slipped off the spigot spilling beer everywhere. Even attaching the tubing with a hose clamp doesn't help as it still ends up slipping off about half way through transferring. I have to sit there holding the tube on the spigot while it transfers to make sure it doesn't spill.

Happens to me too. Having to hold the tubing on during any transfer is the cost of using this spigot. The benefit is that it does not leak.

Rust
They rust, should be stainless!

Theses faucets don't rust. What happens is that the chrome plating disappears and what's left is brass. My concern, however, is how to thoroughly clean the valve and valve packing without disassembly. Soaking alone in PBW and Star San is not going to get to wort trapped in the valve packing.
