I Originally purchased this to make a better bottling system , but I just made a American Pale Ale , batch with a 1.066 OG , and a Imperial yeast House Ale! so it is blowing out my air lock with Foam , all my yeast is blowing out the top , Very vigorous bugs and all that sugar in a 5 gallon fermenter . So I used the tubing to make a airlock in a used clean plastic coffee can with a air lock , a type of dual air lock , where I can catch the yeast through the tube and pour back in , Glad I had it on hand ! and people the Elegant bastard Ale kit is bad ass !
Good product. Arrived clean, clear and pliable. Works well.
After receiving the stainless steel racking cane (which I love!) and the recommended hose I found they did not fit together even after softening the hose with hot water. This is the next size up from the recommended hose and I find it works great. and much better with my bottle filler as well. No problems with air, losing the siphon, or plastic parts breaking as I disassemble and clean up.
The tubing tends to curl up so having the extra fool is the difference between the end at the bottom of the container or dangling in the air and introducing Oxygen.,
No more struggling with the 5/16th, the 3/8th tubing works fine, as long as you jam it on there. The tubing always has a little curl to it, so I'd recommend getting a foot more than you think you need, just to be safe.
