Good point, but its just a matter of preference. Go to your LHBS and ask about what I told you, and also ask about Clarity Ferm which is also a WLP. Hope this helps, and good luck!

Your post sounds confusing. A carboy is a glass or clear plastic jug which looks like a 5 gallon water bottle. I think you mean you're using a fermenting bucket with a lid that has a grommeted hole...

Does anyone know where I can buy them online? My LHBS owner doesn't supply them, and can't seem to get hold of them either.
