Hey, anybody else have issues with the universal carboy bungs not providing a tight seal when wet? I really like them and use the non-drilled and drilled almost exclusively, but sometimes they don't really seal well when coming right out of the sanitizing solution and into the neck of a wet carboy.

Do you dry them off and the inside of the neck as well? I would think that that is a sanitation no-no.

I bought one awhile ago, it sucks, will not work in any of my carboys. The material seems too stiff and will not grab the glass and seal like the rubber ones do.

I just dry mine off with a paper towel...inside the neck of the carboy also. Works everytime.
