After I draw my sample into my testube I usually just let it sit for a few minutes til they subside...usually I pull the sample, go about the rest of my brewing business, like adding yeast, and closing up the fermenter and starting clean up...after 5 or 10 minutes the bubbles have pretty much subsided...
