Default bubbling into airlock

Just made some edworts apfelwein and it started fermenting last nite sometime. Got up this morning and it had bubbled into the airlock. It is still bubbling so should i wait and clean out the airlock later or just leave it. Or should i clean it out immediately. Any ways just another dumb a newbie question. Thanks for all the help.

Ben

+1 on the blow off. If you don't have the tubing on hand, I would just clean it out after it stops bubbling into the airlock. Otherwise you may be cleaning it a lot. Just make sure you have vodka or sanitizer in the airlock.
