2 weeks ago I brewed 5G of 1.09 RIS. Again, krautzen filled up to around the 7 G mark.
Set it and forget it.

Nice. Definitely think I'll upgrade to these late this summer as well.

Add me to the list of vodka-in-the-airlock folks.

i love this thing. putting it up on the counter and bottling right out of the spigot warms my heart.

Yeah, they have been well worth the extra cost.

I got a little trub into the keg last time. I think I will try fermenting with the spigot side of the fermentor elevated so the cake compacts away from the hole.

Good idea - One or two thin wooden shims (like for door installation) would be perfect for this.

i did that the first 2 times but now i just open the spigot full blast into a glass for a bit that clears out the trub and start bottling.

I wanted a couple of these in the worst way but they're still out of stock. I did find these today for a reasonable price. You can get a 2-60L HDPE carboys from this place for $80.

Interesting. I like how they are graduated.
I guess a brewer would use a drilled stopper to put the airlock in...
Is a stopcock a spigot?

There's the company brochure. Yes a stopcock is a spigot.
