Hello everyone,

I am brand new to beer brewing so please forgive me upfront.

I have a 5 gallon SS brew pot that has what I believe to be a 3/8" hole already drilled in it. I would like some help trying to decide what spigot, parts and sizes to get. I would prefer weldless. I am not much of a handyman by nature so if you can specify individual parts that would be helpful to me. I would like to attach a 3/8" copper tube drilled with holes and a stainless steel mesh around it to use as a kind of false bottom, almost like a bazooka screen. Thank you in advance and and if you can please email responses to [email protected]

I would look to bargainfitings.com for the parts unless you have access to parts already.
You may need to enlarge that hole, and a step drill bit is the easiest way (for increasing the hole size)
