Brewing Despair

I was all ready to brew some beer today. I got out the gear I had recently purchased and started going over everything. Everything seemed in order, except the spigots that fit into the fermentation buckets. Take a look.

The damn spigots are missing. I went through everything three times. THey simply forgot to send them to me. I can't brew without them, the wort would spill out of the gaping hole. I could try to rig up a plug of some sort, but brewing is a finicky business. Patching the hole with duct tape would lead to some odd flavors.

The store is out in Riverside and I should be able to pick them up tomorrow. Why aren't they open today!!!
