My primary bucket almost never bubbles through the airlock, but I haven't had a bad brew yet.

That's a fantastic idea revvy. I've never worried too much about aeration with my beers, as I'm generally able to pitch quite soon after pouring the wort.

I've never actually used a secondary for my beers, I just let it sit in the primary for 3-4 weeks.
