Plastic spigots are not very durable.

Have two already and prefer over the palstic one.

the plastic one always leaks.
Kenton C on Apr 20, 2018
Much higher quality than factory spigot and I highly recommend buying one to replace the factory Speidel spigot. My only gripe is that the set screw for the valve handle rusts. Easy enough to head to a hardware store and buy a stainless screw but IMO it should already come with one. Either way I'd recommend buying it.

Better upgrade
Thom C on Mar 5, 2018
plastic one is too flimsy
James C on Feb 17, 2018
Bought this before - I have an idea for gadget that this might work

Want a more reliable valve for my fermenter
Eric Landrum on Jan 23, 2018
want to be able to connect tube to the spigot. Plus the other spigot aerates the liquid.
WILLIAM SCHNEIDER on Jan 17, 2018
Seemed like a necessary upgrade to fit common tubing

Looks great and well made. Have not used it yet, but probably better than original plastic one.

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
