My previous post reported a leaky spigot after 5 days of fermentation. The fix was so simple that it proves how mechanically inept I really am. The top of the spigot needed to be tightened with an allen wrench, which I should have done when I got it. That’s all.
Do you see the top of the handle? That’s a hex bolt, which simply needed to be tightened, which makes the ball valve inside tighter. After I did, no more leaks.
That’s a picture of it not leaking in my cold-crashing mini-fridge. Hopefully no more problems. In other good news, as my first batch of beer carbonates fully (Spring Victory), it is tasting a lot better. Malty and bready, not so bitter.
