The tube needs to end above the surface of the mixture.  The idea is to
let the gas out, not the liquid.  Mine extends just 1 inch down from the
hole in the cap, and cut at an angle, so any liquid that accidentally gets
on it will drip off more easily.

Use 1 cup of sugar and a half teaspoon of yeast.

Good luck,
