Does anyone have experience with fabricating a blow-off tube/pipe with, say, 1/2" PVC pipe as opposed to 3/8" flexible tubing.. I was envisioning making one or two of them. They would come straight up out of the lid, over to the side, and down the side of my fermenting buckets. It seems this would be a bit more air-tight than the traditional flexible tubing method.. but I could be wrong.. any takers?
