When i started cubing i would lay the cube on it's side so all internal surfaces had at least some contact with my hot sweet wort. More often than not i would get a small leak from the tap which i knew i was not bumping in any way. So i got to thinking, when i lay the cube on it's back, a pocket of trapped air always made it's way to the tap where i am guessing, that air would expand and force the tap to jump a thread or something because when i had a leak the tap was always a tad loose. So recently i stopped tipping the cube onto it's back and just leave it upright. So far no probs. Any surface inside my cube even where there may be an air pocket is going to be pretty hot for quite a while. No infections to date. I wonder if anyone else has had a tap loosen in the same way.
