Transferred my batch tonight and happy to report it was a complete success! No leaks what so ever. Bottled 4 bombers and kegged the rest. Again, be sure to wrap and wrap threads. I had lots of leaks on trial runs with transferring. But made sure everything was tight when I transferred.

So do you have to unwrap, clean and rewrap between every batch? What happens if you get a batch in there and it starts leaking? I'm interested in one of these but all the reports of leaking are making me question.

I didn't have any problems with leaking when I tested with water. I just used one wrap of Teflon tape and wrapped it in the direction of the threads.

Really the only part too watch is attaching and removing the collection ball and siphon adapter. The other threads one time only, they recommend every 6 months or how much you use it. The bulkhead is where leaks occur on and around the large threads. I had to use teflon tape here and thread on ball. Than when draining I had no problem. But originally after a few days fermenting it started to leak a little around this area. So I closed value removed ball and wrapped. Reattached than within 24hrs it leaked.

This time I re-cleaned area and wrapped more. Put ball back on and sat for 5 days no problems. Removed ball, attached siphon setup and no leaks. Instructions say that you don't have to tape the large threads but I absolutely had too.

When testing transferring liquid (star-san) it leaked immediately when liquid was stopped after opening value. Tried to hold liquid in tube and pressure caused leak back at bulkhead. Than realized that I needed to tape threads on bulkhead, this solved my leaks.
Brew on.
