For most things it probably doesn't matter as long as you are in the ballpark so corks may be the ticket!
I went with a ball valve so I didn't have to bend over all the time to adjust the intake. What can I say? I'm lazy like that!
I think I am going to start with 4-6 holes on the bottom and use magnets first.
I actually don't mind messing with the vents until I get the temp steady.
