I’m making my own bottling bucket and I was guessing if it would be better to put a valve in the bottom of the bucket instead of a spigot and a dip tube on the lower part of it. Obviously, I’m trying to minimize losses when bottling.
Does anyone has any idea or experience with this?

Thanks!

I use the conventional spigot an inch or so from the bottom...no dip tube or anything. I usually end up with minimal loss, or at the worst, my last bottle gets half filled and there's not enough in the bucket to even fill it. I pour it in a glass and give it a test taste.

Same here. I usually have about half a glass left in the bucket, and I drink it while I'm cleaning up.
