I ferment in a 15 gallon plastic fermenter and would like to test/sample the beer befor racking to a secondary without removing the lid. Does any one have or use a small sampling valve on thier fermenter? If so what kind of setup is it?
I have a ported better bottle. You could probably use their valve setup. I have only used it once so far, but it worked out really well for drawing a gravity sample. Another benefit I found was draining off the yeast after rinsing/washing.
