just use your 3/8" OD siphon tubing....it should fit perfectly in the grommetted hole that your airlock is regularly in. the tubing is significantly more forgiving as far as hops particles, due to the small holes on the bottom of the airlock...

I have always primary fermented in my pail......but this last batch I did, I fermented in a glass carboy because i wanted to "see the process" which was pretty cool, but the krausen and cleaning of a carboy is a lot more rigorous than it ever was in the pail.

Good for you!!!

I also prefer cleaning buckets than carboys , but I like the visuals of carboys over buckets

I only use 7.5 gal buckets and they all have spigots and down tubes of varying heights depending on the brew. Never having to siphon is a good thing and only rarely utilize a secondary...

Why is cleaning a carboy a big deal. I dump an appropriate amount of PBW into carboy, fill with hot water and let it sit overnight. Next day I have a clean carboy.
