Default Emergency blow off set up

So my beer just got an emergency blow off tube set up. Anyone want to guess why... or what this picture looked like before clean up?

Anyway. Does it look alright for a blow off? 3 piece airlock base -> siphon tube -> Erlenmyer with some starsan. I haven't done one before.

That should work just fine. Keep an eye on it to be sure that the airlock part doesn't get blocked up, else it'll blow that lid off.

Its bubbling out into the starsan solution right now. I'll keep an eye on it though. Thanks!
