So, like they say, "it's all good"!
One reason that I prefer my Better Bottles. I can see if anything is happening. I use blow off tubes every time and the stopper doesn't leak. I can hear it, usually before I take a look.
I also find them easier to clean than a bucket. I soak over night with Oxyclean, rinse, insert a washcloth about a quart of hot water, swirl, remove the cloth and rinse well. Filling it with the Oxyclean takes the longest, maybe 15 minutes. Rinsing w/cloth maybe 10 minutes.
