Go ahead and set up a blow off tube- you'll be glad you did!

If you have your airlock in a stopper in the lid, the stopper will accommodate the 3/8" vinyl tubing that seems to be standard issue in homebrew shops. It's a tight fit but you can do it. Remove the airlock, jam the tubing into the stopper, put the stopper back in the lid, and place the free end of the tubing into a container mostly filled with sanitizing solution. Instant blowoff tube.

Just an update - it's been bottle conditioned for 2 weeks now, and it's great. I think I tasted a bit of sourness (still very, very young for RIS), but it has passed several blind taste tests* with flying colors. Has some real subtle smoky malt flavors, strong hop bitterness, pours like oil, awesome head, heavy lacing, and it's definitely high alcohol (calculations say 8.5%). I plan on going through about a 12 pack at Christmas, and saving the rest for next year.

*Pouring a half glass, handing it to a beer-loving friend and asking, "tell me what you think about this beer I just bought." If you want an honest opinion, don't tell them it's homebrew till after they critique it.
