Default Airlock Emergency

This is what happens when you forget to buy an extra airlock. Hose from rubber stopper, into a Mooses Tooth growler

Considering the lack of head space in the carboy, that's probably a good idea anyway

I would, however, put the growler below, rather than above the carboy to avoid a potential siphon.

And if you can get to a LHBS or order a blowoff tube soon, that would be a good idea with so little headspace. A blown up carboy is a very baaaad thing. And 3/8" tubing fouls rather easily.

Are you using a 5 gallon as a primary? Just from what it looks like or is this a secondary in which case a new airlock will probably be in your cart soon

I ate at Mooses Tooth last June. The beer on tap was amazing and so was the pizza.

Still trying to talk the wife into moving up there.
