Pretty much.  I've got a write of it here...

It works really, really well.

Have been fermenting in a 10 gallon keg for quite a while.  It works great!  I use a cask widge flow when transferring to reduce/eliminate sediment pickup all the while not wasting any beer.
Awesome idea!  I bought one to try for serving, but using it in the corny fermenter is genius!  Just pop a little gas-in diptube on the beer-out side and push the silicone hose on?

Thanks.  Did you end up cutting off some of the silicone tubing?
Brew on

Not for a 10 gallon keg, the stock tubing is a perfect length for that.  The tubing does need to be trimmed off for using in a 5 gallon keg.
