Why take a chance. Just use a blow off tube and don't worry about it.

You don't need to remove it if it is sealed well. I do it for all my batches so I don't worry about a mess or blown airlock.They sit for well over a week or more. It's just a big airlock. You have a carboy or bucket?

I have noticed several instances of incomplete fermentations with Munton's yeast. If you have 2 packets I would use it as the 6 gram packs seem a bit small.

Good luck with your brew as I am drinking a wit presently. Are you going to use fresh orange zest?

It's just seems to be something I noticed but your fermentation could be just fine.

It's always nice to have a few extra dry yeasts around for unexpected problems and it will keep a long time in the frig.

If it was really actively fermenting then I would wait it out.
