I can't remember what size stopper this one is but the LHBS where I bought the BB knew exactly which one to use. Works perfectly with a 3 piece airlock.

The washcloth trick works really well for getting that last bit of stuck-on krausen film off. I usually soak with an occasional shake for about an hour, stuff in a clean gym sock, drain it most of the way and then rock the BB on its side so that the rag will wipe the stubborn areas.

Here's what happened to me 2 years ago when I smashed mine against the side of my tub. Don't worry, don't worry, no beer was harmed just me as I had just finished transferring it to secondary. That damn PBW makes the outside of the carboys pretty slippery. Anyways, I ended up with 19 stitches, 11 across my left toes and 8 more on my left ring finger. Pretty wicked, but it was not because of thermal shock. It was because of physical shock. Anyways, no need to worry, carboys are great and they're amazing for fermentation, but you must treat them with care and with respect because they can cause serious harm if broken.
