Blow off tubes so if something ferments crazy you dont end up with mess city.

Added this to my cream stout after the foam started rising into my airlock to prevent a huge mess. Blowoff tubes may be in my future for most of my stronger brews for peace of mind!

That looks like it has potential to be a good kreusen bomb! Are those peaches in the fermenter? Watch that blowoff tube doesn't clog and go boom in the night...that would be some modern art for sure!

Yes. I learned about it in Prague.

It means to throw someone out of a window, usually to their death, but sometimes just seriously injured. It happened a bunch in Bohemian history and was an easy way to deal with councilmen and religious leaders they didn't like.
