The inner sleeve of our Igloo MLT Cooler just seperated from the outter shell so we're looking at making a new one and somehow my dad noticed that an extra Bottling Bucket spigot fit in the hole and that the copper manifold we use for sparging actually fits perfectly in the spigot as well.
he was using an Italian Bottling Spigot like this one;
It dissembles for easy cleaning and only costs $3.50
I was thinking of maybe trying to see if this one fit as well though as it seems it'd be easier to managed the flow rate and only costs $5.50;
I guess my question is, they're obviously food safe but does anyone have any possible idea how high of temps they can handle.
My dad has made one brew with it and it didn't appear to melt at all, but I work with a bunch of hippies who say it may be leaching chemicals without actually melting.
I can post pictures next week as I'm not going over there to do another batch until this weekend.
