One of the few issues I have with the Speidel is the apparent metric size of the plastic tap/spigot. It doesn't like to play with imperial vinyl tubing very well. I found this on the German Amazon page - a brass spigot for Speidel fermenters. I'm curious if it would be more forgiving. I also like the brass vs the plastic. Not for any real reason - just preference. They'll ship to US for pretty cheap.
They also have the Speidel 60L Fermenter for $63! But won't ship it to the US.
Has anyone used this spigot with any luck? Thanks!
