FAQ's

Can I use a spigot / dispensing spout on the 55-gallon plastic drum?

Yes, HDPE (plastic) drums are designed to accept commonly available 2” threaded spigots / spouts. Spigots are available at distributors, like at https://www.grainger.com/product/GRAINGER-APPROVED-Drum-Tap-6PFN4.


Can I use a spigot / dispensing spout on the 5-gallon carboy?

Yes, the hole in the center of the cap is designed to work with commonly available 2” threaded spigots / spouts. To use: 1) remove the cap, 2) drill a large hole in the center of the threaded hole in the cap, 3) screw the spigot onto the cap, 4) screw the cap back on the carboy, 5) turn the carboy on its side so the spigot points down and check to make sure the spigot isn’t leaking. Spigots are available at distributors, like at https://www.grainger.com/product/GRAINGER-APPROVED-Drum-Tap-6PFN4.


How do I remove the cap from the 5-gallon carboy?

There is a ratcheted ring on the bottom of the cap, which locks the cap into place and prevents it from unscrewing during shipment. To remove, insert a flathead screwdriver between the cap and the ring and pry it loose so the perforations break free. Then remove the ring. It is similar to removing the tamper-proof lock on a plastic jug of milk.
