So I started brewing this apple wine yesterday and it already appears to be doing really good. There's a lot of bubbling going on. However, my airlock has filled up with more fluid and it's getting close to spilling over. Is this a problem or is there any solutions to the problem?

you do not need to primary ferment with an airlock, you do not have enough space in between your wine and your airlock so the pressure builds up and causes the juice to come up and go into the lock. remove the airlock or get a bigger fermentor.
