Default First blowoff

I just recently made a 2 gallon IIPA. It started fermenting well after approx. 8 hours. I had to buy a blow off tube this morning at lowes. It was fermenting like crazy and bubbling in the pot of water. Krausen was coming through the fermenter and into the pot of water. Anyway, the bubbling has stopped and fermentation has seemed to slow down after 24 hours. Should I keep the blow off tube on or should I cap it??

Just leave the blowoff tube until you are ready to bottle/keg. There is no harm in using the blowoff tube. Many people use them as standard practice and don't even use airlocks.

Wow..whats with all the blowoff tube questions the last few days? There are 4-5 thread recently posted about blowoff tubes.

It's getting warmer. I bet we see a lot more as summer gets closer.
