ok i found out the hard way that im gonna need a blowoff tube for my carboy, so should i get tubing that is large enough to fit snuggly into the mouth of the carboy or can i just use tubing that will fit though my stopper, (rougly siphon hose size)?

and a big oops for accidently posting this in someone elses thread earlier....

Your best bet would be to get a length of tubing that will fit snugly into the neck of the carboy. There is less risk of the blow off tube getting plugged up with sticky krausen due to its large inside diameter.

I will second this. Mine fits nice and tight in the carboy.
