Unfortunately, the holes are not threaded for me, but a 1" PVC fitting with threads DOES fit quite nicely. I figure if I get some sort of grommet to seal it off, I'll be good to go.

Unfortunately, all I have is a plastic "Ale Pail" type primary, and no glass carboys yet, but it may be time to invest ;) I wish my primary was glass as well, as the...

Does it sound like it will turn out alright? In my beginning stages still, I just am enjoying experimenting, but I combined several recipes to achieve that one. With my initial gravity of 1.080,...
