Default Holy blowoff...

I know there are probably threads about this bit after a 13 hour day,...car died,...I am being lazy. Got home airlock on the floor and wow,...what a mess. I rigged a blowoff tube and just hoping for the best? Maybe nothing got into the carboy to spoil my sweet nectar...?

probably not. should have been enough pressure to keep out all the nasties. you're only the 1,546,354,743rd person to have a blowoff, and 99.9999994 % of us didn't have any problem

Yep. Done that before!

Just wait until the overflow has stopped and throw the airlock back on.

Also, you'll want to be sure to lick the precious krausen off of the floor. It's good for the soul.

I've only had that happen 10,000 times, never once anything bad because of it.
Actually some of my best brews had a blowoff
