Just read the OP description. It's literally a 90 degree PVC connector with threads on one end. You screw it onto the spigot on the inside and it syphons from the bottom. It's pure genius.

If you can't find the white PVC elbow, Home Depot also sell gray plastic elbows for sprinkler applications.

Bottled my friends' batch last weekend after doing thisand it was a great experience. Almost no wsted beer at all.

Oh I also bottled over the door of the open dishwasher and that worked like a champ. Super easy cleanup.

Back to the hardware store...we need a master DIY sticky.."next time you go to HD/Lowes buy all this sh&t" then as we read along the forums we'd have the inventory. I know it wouldn't work but every good idea sends me back again.

I picked up an elbow and found the spigot to be so near the bottom that the elbow was to long. I'll cut a bit off and refit it, so there is about 1/8 inch between the elbow and bucket bottom. The cut edge may have to be treated with a torch for that nice shiny finish, only have .93 invested.
