I just finished putting this, with the invert nut, on the 3 gall. better bottle fermenter. I HATE using a siphon. this makes transferring wort so much easier... all my fermenters have this setup... this is a MUST have!!!!
Perfect for what I needed
I installed this valve in 8 gallon fermenting and priming buckets purchased from local homebrew store. The wall thickness of those buckets were twice the 6 gallon buckets from Williams. It was very difficult to insert transfer valve in 1" hole (would not thread in at all) and I worried that the threads would be damaged as I forced it in. But struggled to get it in anyway and tightened enough not to leak. Had I possessed a hole saw 1/16th or maybe even 1/8th larger it would have been much easier.
Have 3 on my primarys..1 each...works great without the need to siphon...many great beers with this... shall we call it apparatus...
So far so good for 3 batches...no leaks..easy racking
