Does anyone know if the normal sized (as opposed to the Mini) Fermtech autosiphon will fit in a gallon sized container, i.e. a milk jug? I have a batch of hard apple cider fermenting now in 2 1-gallon milk jugs and I plan on making bigger batches in the future with bigger containers (such as Better Bottles), and if possible I don't want to have to purchase two autosiphons. Thanks...

It fit in a 1 gallon glass jug for me. The only thing that didn't fit in there was my thief.

I have two for that very reason. I don't know which one is the "normal" but one is 3/4 inch in diameter and the other is 1 inch. They are both the same length and use the same tubing.

Hey, thanks for the help. I think I'll probably just get the smaller one just to be safe, and if I need another one later on, I'll get one. Oh well, just take it as it comes...
