Thats exactly what I did this morning. Went down to check on my Tripel and found the airlock was completely full of yeast. I even got a face full of yeast when the pressure was released from inside the fermenter and it sprayed yeast. I remove the airlock and just go with some 1in diameter tubing with the other end in a bucket star san.

Leave the bung until after the beer is done and you rack it out. It will be fine.
