First time using a blowoff tube.
2 Attachment(s)
Ya so I brewed a batch last night and after about 18 hrs after pitching my yeast starter, the krausen was up to the airlock. I sanitized my blowoff tube and stuck it in. I love seeing krausen but I want it to stay in my beer!!

looks awesome. So you are using a 5 gal carboy as a primary?

I have been debating if I can/should do that. I dont want to lose much in the blow off.

Lol no its a 6 and a half primary. I have 5 gal's for secondarys.

Its a dogfish head 90min clone :) The krausen is half way up the blowoff tube now. Never had to use one before.

What size is the tube do you use?

good all grain recipe for that 90min? if so, I would love it if shared. did you do the constant hop addition?

Not sure of the tube size, came in a beginner brewing package I got. I can measure if you really would like to know. It fits in the carboy real tight which is good.

This was a partial mash recipe, I got it from my LHBS and ya 90min boil and hop additions every 7 and a half min. And it requires a dry hop too.

I can measure the inside neck of a carboy. I was just curious as to if you bought a particular style and/or size. Ive had a few bucket fermentation's where I had to pull the airlock and let it flow out. I've since went to a 6.5 carboy for primarys with an air lock, but nothing has reached top, yet..
