If using a 6.5 glass carboy as a primary, when do you need a blow off system? Only on Big beers? Will a airlock do the job?

Thanks for the info guys... Looks like I just toss them in and after 6 days shake the carboy a little and they'll sink to the bottom... Not sure if I'll do this again. I'll go for the fresh hops.

How long is too long?

Hey all,
How long is too long for a batch to sit in the primary? I want to brew this weekend but will not be able to move to secondary for about 10 days. Still ok?
