A good tip, but as a safe guard I would be placing check valves on the
bottle lines to stop the intake siphoning the bottle contents if a low
pressure situation should arise. OR. use an external bubble counter
made of a 1.25L bottle 50% filled with water to buffer the gas.

When I place my line on a venturi I do this because I don't want the
filter sucking yeast mixture into the tank.


I don't get THAT much suction :P, it would have to be enough to crumple the
plastic of the bottle to get the yeast/suger high enough to be sucked up as
I don't fill my bottles up to the top. Be useful though if for some reason
you get your yeast foaming up which I have heard of, haven't hit it myself
