Rookie mistake/smell.
1 Attachment(s)

Well, I overfilled my carboy or I have the worlds most violent fermentation. Thank GOD I got home when i did. Instead if mt Vesuvius, I have a Hawaiian volcano. I was worried sick all night then I Come home to a bedroom that smells like bread dough (the smell the smack pack had) and I knew I was in trouble. Open the closet door and I find this. I pulled the airlock and a slow flowing volcano started, thank god it didn't shoot to the ceiling. (Cont.)

I ran into a similar problem. I used the siphon hose from my kit and inserted into the airlock to make the blow off hose. Then I put the end of the hose first into a prego jar, which filled, and then into a milk gallon both with vodka as the sanitizer.

I improvised and came close to the airlock solution. I bypassed it altogether and went for the plug instead!
