I am guessing I have made 6 mashes in this "new" rubbermaid 5 gallon MLT and today, when I put in my strike water, it started leaking.
I dumped the water and took everything apart only to find hair cracks around the spigot hole.
I havent used any tools to tighten this, but it cracked none the less.
I torqued down all the nuts to try to mend it for now. It helped, but I get a drip every 15 seconds. Doubt it will amount to much over a 60 minute mash, BUT!
Any suggestions for a repair that wont effect the wort? I have liquid electrical tape, caulk and all kinds of stuff, but I am concerned about the mal-effects.
