Well, I've got a different type of gusher in my porter then, because mine have been in the keezer for two weeks and that didn't help at all!
How cold do I need to get these things?!?!?
So, far I've seen no problems with later batches using the same bucket fermenters. However, they were all kegged and this was the last one I bottled. So, I may just go ahead and replace the bottling bucket and spigot to be safe. I already replaced the tubing and have used the auto-siphon since without further trouble, crossing fingers!!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
