I just had 2 beers fermenting in buckets a few days back.

Beer 1: Centennial Blonde with dry yeast - Airlock
Beer 2: Oatmeal Stout with harvested yeast and yeast starter - Blowoff Tube after a day, lid was bulging

So it really depends on the beer strength and yeast.

So, no, a blow-off tube isn't necessarily cheaper.
if you paid 10 dollars for tubing at home depot you got hosed.

You are correct, I must have been thinking of the 20' tubing. It was about $5 after tax. I'll edit my post above.

I thought it sounded odd saying the LHBS was reasonably priced.

I bought 10' of 3/8 and 10' of 1/2 for 9.82 after sales tax (6%)

How do you attach a blow off hose to a bucket lid?

Either use 3/8 tubing and insert it right into grommet, or use 1/2 in ID tubing and put it over the tube in a 3 piece airlock
