The tube that is submerged in water is steadily blipping. am i going to need to keep it this way the entire time its fermenting or will this foam go down and i replace the normal airlock?

no...i didn't completely remove the airlock. I put a long piece of 1/2" tubing over the middle tube of a 3 piece lock and ran it into a bowl full of water...just wanted to know if i should remove the tube and put the airlock back together.

How the heck do you get krausen on apfelwein? ...and enough to crud up a blowoff? All I get is cloudiness for a couple weeks and some rhino farts.
