after reading this last night, i bought the same right angle 3/4 thread fitting for a whopping 63cents. i have a true brew bottling bucket-... i had to cut the 90deg fitting by about a 1/2". i had to remove the platic nut from the back completely and replaced it w/ the 90deg fitting. i re-used the gaskets.

i took it for a test drive w/ some water-... no leaks, worked as everyone said, and only had about 1/16" of water @ the bottom!

You guys with the books and pucks - drop the big loot and buy the damn thing! You will thank me (well, you can actually thank the original poster which I should probably find again and thank!)

A 3/4 elbow pipe ran me 79 cents at Ace. Just did a water run in the bottling bucket, all but 1/2 cup came out. Amazing! I told the guy at Ace it was going to change my life.

I'm actually looking forward to bottling in 2 weeks. New dip tube for the spigot, new sulfiter and bottle tree. If only I could afford a slick bench capper to I'd be in bottling paradise.

Man do I wish I would have seen this sooner, very slick! Thank you! I got one that has some molding defects with some pitting in spots, shouldn't be a problem if i soak in Star San though should it?

I used the same but went with normal non threaded pipe, then I used a threaded street adapter screwed to the spigot to connect the 90 to. I was concerned about the threads holding nasties.
