I am using the Northern Brewer 2 gallon bucket for primary fermentation and need some info. Of the two hoses that came with my starter kit neither of them will fit into the grommet hole in the top of the bucket to be used as a blow off tube. What size tubing do I need for that?
Secondly, it looks like the bucket lid description says that the lids are only good for a single use. Can that possibly be correct? They are trash after one batch?
