i had the spring loaded tip on a clear plastic tube from 20 years ago. when I bottle, I take that clear tube and shove it in a picnic faucet. i open my valve and use gravity to flow and control it with the faucet. no drips and easy to handle. all you need is a cheapy black picnic faucet. you could also put a piece of hosing over the faucet. i use that to fill growlers from my draft setup.
