I do believe that is called "Brewkakke"

What do you guys usually use for a blowoff on a bucket?

I had my first "overflow" in my bucket today... But it just pushed the vodka out and bubbled onto the lid... I rinsed and replaced it and refilled with vodka...

I usually use a drilled stopper and a 3/8" hose.

I cut the bottom tube off my old cooper's "S" type airlock & jammed it into one end of a 3/8" tube. Made it long enough to go down into a 1/2G vodka jug 1/3 full of water & a splash of star-san.

Or you might learn something about your friends you didn't know already!

The lhbs sells a large diameter hose for a blowoff for a carboy.... No stopper just a tube that fills up the neck.... That way if something gets stuck in the little hole it doesn't blow the stopper out of the carboy....

Is there something to use in a bucket? the little hole is probably too small....
