Make sure the pail has water or sanitizer in it. Other than that, you've done what you can do besides wait it out! Be happy that your yeast are happy.

It's all good! The beer is doing what it's supposed to do. Just do as the Baron said and make sure the end of the blow off tube is under water (or sanitizer). Also, since it's a crazy fermentation, make sure it's not overheating. Try to keep the temperature at around 70 inside that fermenter if you can.

it's 65-68 down here all day long, the last three batches seem to do okay in that.

Sounds perfect!

I think you'll have some great beer when it's done.
