Ok yesterday my wort fermenting was burping in to the airlock i removed airlock 3xs and sterilized and refilled with Sanitizer.
.
This morning my burping has settled down (slept little, i was expecting a explosion in my closet) its burping every 1 -2 seconds.
. I'm leaving out today i drive a truck, but I'll be home Friday. Will it be ok? Will it blow up on my wife? Lol

If your using a glass carboy you can fit a 1" tube directly into the neck. It works really well.

IO got a brass double stab. One end fits into the airlock grommet, the other in the appropriately sized tube.
