Cleans easily with just a jet of water from the hose, sponge, towel and even plastic scrubbers are ok too!

I just kegged a portion of a Saison I brewed in the 60L Speidel and had bubbles in the tubing.

I used a piece of silicone tubing and attached it to a beer in ball lock. When I opened the valve it appeared that I was getting air bubbles in the tubing. I didnt see any air coming in from either the spigot or the ball lock. I am not sure if they were from the CO2 escaping or what. Anybody else have that "issue".

The saison(belle saison) turned out great and I had it sitting in the fermenter for like 8 weeks (6 weeks around 38 deg). I put the cap on the top to seal the fermenter guessing the majority of fermentation was completed. My spigot didnt leak at all.

So far I am pretty happy with it.

Does anybody take apart the spigot or do you all just soak the spigot in PBW, or just run hot PBW through the spigot and then sanitize with starsan?

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
