There is. He's healing nicely, and the stitches come out in a few weeks!

Here's mine. It's made by symbio Canada. (out of business I believe) I'd love another one. It's a bulkhead fitting with a "Drum Tap"
Threaded in. Easy to clean and racks almost perfect every time
If anyone knows how to get one of these please PM me

#1 Why would you want a spigot in a carboy? That really sounds like a PITA!
#2 That sounds like the best way to ensure the need for a visit to the O.R.!

Get a ported Better Bottle. Thousands of brewers use them with no ill effects.

Do you eat your deli foods out of plastic containers?
Do you drink bottled water out of plastic bottles?

It amazes me the paranoia about plastic!

Spigot in Carboy makes racking WAY easier. No Cane, no siphon starting needed, no accidental sucking up of yeast cake, no chance of siphon getting jammed from trub etc. Save several minutes of time and hassel..

now for plastic paranoia.. After 25 years of brewing and being a wine sommelier my palate is pretty refined. I decided to do a test. I did 3 batches in a row, split between a glass fermenter (in pic) and a standard plastic one. Each batch was a different beer too. I triangle tested each beer after kegging and conditioning and I was very surprised when I picked the plastic all three times as the inferior beer in each case.. Let me say this...the difference was very minimal between each, almost imperceptable, but still just enough to convince me that there is a difference. Is it necessary to ditch plastic fermenters? I doubt it... Is glass better? IMO yes, minimal but yes..
Do I want the best of both worlds? Ease and better taste.. Yup
trying to open a professional craft brewery as we speak so quality right now it everything to me.. (SS conicals obviously is the next step but this is my home brewery)
