went out and got a glass secondary today, everything is going fine, finally get it all sanitized and siphoned in put the stopper in, put the airlock in...and proceed to push the stopper into the carboy.....so I am now siphoning back into the primary (after sanitizing it) any tips on getting a stopper out of the bottom of a carboy?
When I did this . . . , I tipped the carboy so that the stopper fell to the opening. I then used a screwdriver to wedge it securely against the side of the carboy while I proceeded to cut it apart with a sharp knife. Then, I was able to extract the bits easily.
