After 5 days of no fermentation (at all) confirmed by SG (1.069) reading the same as before I pitch the yeast post boil, I re-pitched a batch of the same variety of yeast last night. This morning (9 hrs later) I had massive fermentation and slight blow off through my airlock. When I returned from work (another 10 hrs) my airlock had blown clear off and yeast splattered my ceiling and walls
So I developed a simple blow off tube to fix the problem. My concern is this, though there is still steady activity, I am worried that the fermentation process will be cut short because of the blow off and subsequent lost yeast. Would pitching yeast to the 2ndary ferment be necessary?
