So I was cleaning out my only empty LBK for a batch and I took off the spigot to give it a good soak and get all the goo out of the threads and washer, etc. I figure it's good to do that at least every now and then. Anyhoo...twisting the thing back on there, I snapped off the tubing barb so now it's got a stub and a hole where I'd be attaching tubing when the time comes. I had to go ahead and fill it and the valve part is perfectly intact, so it'll be fine for fermenting. I'll be able to get a replacement by the time I need the LBK again, but when it comes time to bottle, I'll have to deal with this one. Any ideas?
