Thanks so much! The stockpile is key, and maintaining it is essentially the only reason I'm brewing 15 gallons per batch (that and better clarification through longer aging). SWMBO and I might kill a keg in 2-4 weeks, but if we have people over we can kill one in one night. For every 3 kegs I empty I always want to have atleast 6 carboys / bottles waiting to fill them. SWMBO is testy about when I have my brew days, so having a cushion of several weeks worth is essential.

Great vid, inspired me to automate my set-up. I don't like walking around the house with 10+ gallons of hot wort so looking into a pump to move the runoff to the brew kettle. I have several of those fermenters and cut the top off of one to get a spigot on. A PITA to Jerry rig something to get the top back on. How did you get the spigot on yours? The holes not big enough to get my arm thru and even if I could, I don't think it would be long enough.

I do still tend to make the floor sticky from time to time.

I used an 11/16 hole saw to cut the hole, and then used a a 3/4" thread cutting tap to thread it so it would match the male thread on my spigot. Then I just globbed on a healthy amount of silicone and screwed it in.
