    My advice with beer is to always use a blow off tube no matter what. Almost all of my brews
    have some blow off. It's a very good thing. When there is none, that's when you should worry. I
    thought this...

    Until it soaks in, then it's sticky, crusty, stainy nastiness that will never come out. I still
    have slight discoloration on the wall and ceiling of my extra bathroom from an over-zealous
    fermentation...

    Just wanted to give a quick update. I've got the hood back on with the probe and airlock all
    back together. The temp is set to 65 and there's some slow but steady action in the airlock.

    If it's not pushing krausen out the tube, go ahead and put the airlock back on.cool deal, the
    hood and the airlock are currently sitting in hot sanitizer. I'll replace around noon and reset
    the temp c...

    also, does anyone else think it's a good idea to switch that tube out with something a bit
    cleaner?? I mean..it is technically still pushing out co2 so maybe that's okay and it is
    blowing bubbles a li...

    It's def slowed down and I've replaced it with a small Tupperware container filled with water
    and starsan mix. There is some co2 activity but not much. Thinking about putting it back the
    way it was mi...

    The chances are pretty high I'll be working remotely tomorrow with snow outside but I'll be
    heading to bed soon. 251851This is what I'm currently getting..still need a jar and sanitizer
    ASAP?? Or can ...

    Get that blow-off tube out of that big tub and use a small jar, with barely enough liquid to
    cover the end.You are fermenting at 70 F, and your basement is 58 F. Once fermentation slows
    and the beer c...

    I look at blowoffs as a good thing (especially if prepared like you are) as it means the yeast
    is healthy and working overtime. I would keep the temperature where it is and let the yeast do
    it's magic...
