Default When setting up your first blow off tube, don't...

accidently siphon off a cup of fermenting wort. When you're a one gallon brewer, that's substantial.

Lesson: watch your blowoff tube for a couple of minutes before walking away.

Good advice The tube shouldn't be in the wort - just there in case there is too much krausen.
