It's been 5 days since pitching, and the krausen was starting to drop. I had a blowoff tube set up, and last night I replaced it with an airlock.

This morning, the airlock was bubbling away, and there was condensation on the inside of the carboy (not a ton). I also noticed that the krausen had fallen significantly since last night. It's been pretty warm (72-75)-it looks as if the Co2 just isn't getting out as fast or as easily as it was with the blowoff.

Is there anything wrong with this? My gut reaction is that it's fine-but it never hurts to ask.
