not many people actually do any searching. most people do the lazy thing and just make another meaningless post about something that's been gone over and over and over again. more times than not when i see a thread about a certain question, i can search and find the answer.
to the OP in this thread: sorry i didn't mean to be aggressive like i was. i should've used better tact and made my point a little more pleasantly. i bet next time you'll search for the answer first, though
as for your questions i would just use the same tubing you use for racking and put that in your bung. at least that's what i do and it works fine. some hop residue might get in there but i've never had it get clogged. if you keep emptying your airlock and re-filling eventually your airlock will become completely clogged and it'll blow making one hellofa mess!
