Default Blow Off Tube

What diameter hose would fit into the standard opening of a fermenting bucket? Time for a blow-off tube. Apparently I had a nice explosion at home.

Usually it's the same as the tubing for your racking cane....

And if you catch it before it fills your airlock you can take the bobber out and the tube fits nicely inside the airlock pipe also
