Default HELP!...Foam coming from air lock

Any suggestions....I am at 48 hrs in the primary for my sweet stout. Foam just started coming out of the airlock (plastic fermentor).

Put in a blowoff tube. If you don't have one, remove the airlock, sanitize your siphon hose and stick in in the bung. Put the other end in a jug of sanitizer

Thanks. The improvised blow-off tube is working.
