Nice one. I definitely didn't think about the spigots. Ill do that today. And yes, I learned early on that the spray bottle technique worked wonders !

Also I know I've read before somewhere that starsan kept in a spray bottle is good until it turns cloudy, right?

Star san is good as long as the PH is less than 3.5 cloudy or clear.

Every time I empty a bucket, I disassemble the spigots and wash them along with the bucket. When I get ready to use that bucket/spigot, I soak the spigot parts in diluted bleach water, then rinse, then run Iodorphor through it, assemble, and run more Iodorphor through it, the filling wand, the tubing, the airlock parts and of course anything else will touch the wort. Since I have gotten anal about cleaning/sanitizing, my beers have had no problems since.
