Alright, I just racked a blueberry on top of puree tonight. I did not put a blowoff there. I promise the pics if there is a natural disaster. Really.

my fermenter was in my closet until the first time it blew off and gave all my hanging clothes a nice green tint.

I'm just not sure I understand why people don't always use a blow-off.

A nice large-bore blowoff hose came in my NB starter kit, but even if you have to buy one, they are like $4.00.

But, what I really wanted to say is how funny that damn picher is.

Pez.

I like the aesthetics of a bubbling airlock better. This is an art, ya know.

But seriously, I usually do, but my blowoff setup was tied to a new batch, and at the same time I was racking onto the blueberry, so I was a little limited. I still could have thrown something together, I suppose, but, meh.

Glad you're blueberry didn't blow out. I am getting close to bottling now, and noticed there's still a fair bit of blueberry pulp in there. Basically small enough to pass through the racking cane but large enough to notice in your mouth. I added a bit of finings to settle things out more. If it persists I could filter it using my mash tun.

I'll let you know how it goes.
