I did a search on Burton Union Systems but didnt really find the answers I was looking for so thought I would ask here. Do any of you use a burton union during the first part of fermentation to catch the blow off? I read the article that byo magazine had a while back and was thinking of building one to use instead of blow off tubing. My concern is the possiblity of the tubing becoming plugged and having a mess on my hands but im not sure how likely that is to happen. So what is the opinon out there, are burtons worth it or not?
