I thought about making a manifold to hold the two bottling wands, but I already had a second spigot, so here it is. Worked exactly as I expected: twice as fast

HAHAHAHA score! That's simply awesome... I was expecting a y-joint or something but double-spigot is far more sweet.

I thought really hard for about 5 minutes on ways to do this without 2 spigots. I thought about milling holes / channels in delrin, encasing a plastic 'Y' connector in a polyurethane block, and some other dumbnesses that aren't coming to me now.

I'm glad I took the easy route and just put the second spigot in there. It made my bottling day so much faster, and I learned that my old Williams Brewing spigot is extremely slow (or there's something wrong with that bottling wand). I can almost fill two bottles with the one on the left before the one on the right is done. So, I'd say my bottling day is now 3 times as fast.

I'm surprised that I've not seen anyone else doing this before. I'm sure they have, but I haven't come across it.

I believe the right side one is a wine spigot which has a smaller diameter inside........ Did you ever try the Berliner Wiesse with lime zest?

Hmmm... really? I'll have to check that out... how can you tell?

Re: BW: not yet. It's sorta forgotten in my sour cabinet. I probably won't touch it for another week or two. In the pics I'm bottling a pale ale.

I haven't bottled in a while but might have to try this next time I do. I also like how you've mounted the bottling wand. I had been using a long piece of hose in between which meant one hand always had to be holding that. very nice
