Brew Safe Stainless Steel Spigot for Kombucha Brewing Vessels

Not so keen on using plastic? Prefer the look of Stainless Steel? Now you have the option of decanting your brew safely and in style with our Stainless Steel Spigot.

 

While our plastic spigots are 100% brew safe, some folks prefer to keep plastic to a minimum. Stainless steel of 304 grade and higher is corrosive resistant and used extensively in the professional brewing community, including with vinegar which is up to 40X more acidic than Kombucha during brewing. This type of spigot is the only metal spigot safe to use with Kombucha or other fermented drinks. It also has a nicer look and feel than many of the cheap-o, metallic painted spigots on the market which are completely unsafe for brewing Kombucha.

 

This model has a terrific flow through rate, is very easy to assemble and clean. And now it includes a FREE Spigot Brush, which makes cleaning even easier. If small amounts of culture or yeast block the flow, just use the brush to dislodge the items and restore the flow rate. Now that the cork lining is available (use checkbox for this option), the Stainless Steel spigot is compatible with ALL KKAMP CONTINUOUS BREW VESSELS! Upgrade your spigot - upgrade your brew!

Installing the New Spigot

Prior to starting a new brew, it’s important to check the spigot for leaks. Attach the brew-safe spigot to the vessel properly and then fill it with enough water so that the spigot is completely covered. Wait at least an hour, up to 24 hours, to check for any leaks in the assembly.

 

If there are leaks, no worries, just empty the vessel, unscrew the spigot, adjust the washers, and reattach. Usually flipping the washers helps fix any issues. Keep testing until no leaks occur.

 

Cleaning the Spigot

Sometimes yeast or bits of SCOBY may collect inside the spigot and clog up the flow. This is perfectly normal but can be frustrating. Rather than having to take the whole assembly apart every time this happens, simply dislodge them with the FREE spigot brush included with every KKamp spigot. If you did not order a spigot from Kombucha Kamp, you can try using a toothpick or something similar to dislodge the blockage.

 

When it is truly time to clean the spigot, or if it proves too difficult to remove a blockage, simply take the spigot apart and run under clean, hot water which should flush the items. When unattached, it may also be easier to pick out any remaining yeast or SCOBY. If the brew molded, however, it is advised to use soap, or in extreme cases even bleach, to remove any residue prior to restarting the Kombucha brew in the same vessel.

 

Why use a spigot when brewing Kombucha?

It's not necessary to have a vessel with spigot to make Kombucha at home, but it certainly can be more convenient. Generally this means using the Continous Brew method, which is popular with millions of homebrewers all over the world, as it makes delicious Kombucha more quickly and with less mess than Batch Brewing. Continuous Brewing, aka "CB," works best in a larger vessel with that spigot attached.

 

But it's also possible to use a vessel with a spigot to make large batches rather than a Continuous Brew, draining the vessel completely each time. Every person finds the rhythm that fits their brewing needs, and a spigot will always make dispensing the brew into bottles cleaner and easier than pouring from the top of the jar or using ladles and siphons, whether using CB or Batch.

 

Any spigot we offer will be a great option, but frankly this stainless steel spigot is our favorite due to the striking appearance and little bit of extra flow. It looks great on any vessel, and because so many people have stainless steel appliances in their kitchens, it's nice to be able to match the existing look.

 

Our Kombucha Kamp stainless steel spigot is a great way to not only decant your brew in a safe and clean manner, but to also add new style and flair to most Continuous Brewers. The joy of brewing Kombucha comes just as much from having a healthy homemade beverage option as it does from being proud of the brew!

My stainless steel spigot works like a dream. It's as easy to pour my kombucha from the 2.5 Gal brewer as it is to turn on the water at my sink. I can fill my 6 bottles and be ready for second ferment in no time at all. There is no debris in the kombucha as it flows out of my hand-crafted brewer that is lovely to look at with the stainless steel spigot attached. Very glad I made this purchase and would recommend it to anyone contemplating this purchase.

I recently purchased the stainless steel spigot. It has revitalized my kombucha making! The old plastic was turning green, losing its coating and was so plugged as to be unusable. I have not had to clean this spigot as the flow rate is so good, but when I do, the included brush promises to make it an easy task. No leaks, looks great, easy to use. Very happy I purchased.

I ordered the stainless steel spigot and received it only to find out that the hole in my ceramic vessel was oversized and the cork liner didn't quite seal. The KKamp team jumped into action and custom ordered me a new cork and it's fits like a glove!! After installing it the KTea pours nicely out of the SS spigot! Thanks for getting me back into the brewing game! You guys are awesome!!

I had purchased a glass container I liked but it came with one of the cheap, metallic paint spigots. This was okay, but I had read that eventually it would start chipping and would ruin my brew, so I purchased this spigot. I find that this spigot is so much better in terms of flow rate and ease of use, with the added benefit of it being safe for my kombucha. It is a sturdy piece of equipment and easy to clean as well. I highly recommend getting one of these!!!

The instructions for installation in my brew crock were very detailed, with a video showing exactly what to do if you have a hard time following written instructions. I have been using it for five months, and it has been very tight, with a nice stream of kombucha coming out when fully opened. I do leave my glass under it long enough to catch that last drop, but it has been nice and tight fitting.

These spigots are truly awesome. I loved them so much, I purchased 3 more for my glass brewers that came with plastic spigots. They are terrific, and have great flow. It use to take me about 1.5 hours to bottle 6 gallons of brew. Now I can bottle the same amount in about 30-40 minutes, simply because the spigot flows so much better. No more scoby goo forming in the spigot either. I'm sold!

Choose this spigot as it seemed the natural choice to go with the Stainless Steel Brew Unit. I didn't really think much about it. However the quality of this spigot gets your attention. Fast flow rate. I use a plastic one [from a local water vendor, not KK] for our bottled water and its flow rate enables one to age while waiting, it's that slow. Not so with my Kombucha Kamp stainless steel spigot. Easy to clean - brush provided and works smoothly. Very happy customer. Thank you KK Team

I chose the Stainless Steel spigot because from my experiences with products I just prefer metal parts over plastic every time. I have 3 CB vessels in use between home and work with plastic spouts from this KK web store. The plastic spouts do work fine but decided to try a stainless spout. The Steel just feels better in your hand than plastic but also, I've noticed that the flow of Kombucha is at a greater volume than with the plastic spigots. Not sure if the diameter of the stainless spigot is slightly larger or if the yeast just doesn't stick to the steel as easily as the plastic. Saves time not having to clean out spigot every time you top off your batch.
