Default Emergency help w/ monster krausen

So I bought a 6.5 gallon carboy and figured I didn't need to get a blow off tube. WRONG-O BONG-O

Here is my MacGyver'd blow off tube. How do I make a proper blow off tube?




I feel very silly right now.

In the morning I'll go get a proper blow off tube. Ugh. I do not want to screw this beer up.

Looks pretty cool to me, very creative!

If it's working, why worry about it?

Hey your carboy is turning into Howie Mandel back in the 80's!

That pic made my morning. Your carboy, like a one-armed smurf, has one blue, four-fingered hand.
