Yeah, the blowoff tube setup was actually a relic of back when I had only a 5 gallon carboy. Now that I upgraded to 6.5, I can probably ditch it entirely in favor of just an airlock. I haven't had blowoff since upgrading.

Hope things turn out for you, I thought I read that too much starsan is poisonous.

Untrue... The guy who invented star san drank a glass of it to prove that you don't need to rinse it. That is, if it was mixed with the correct proportion of water.

Sounds like it's going to turn out well for you. Cheers, I'm sure you're relieved.

Definitely this. I've had the same happen.

Appreciate it, y'all. Looks like this batch will turn out okay, although it'll be the most expensive batch I've ever made (only got 32 bottles out of what was supposed to be five gallons)

Sounds like things are going to turn out. I've never used a blow-off (I've always had 6.5 gallon carboys and used regular airlocks), but what some of the others have said regarding suck back does make sense. Hope the beer that you were able to collect turns out well!
