Do you think I should set up a blow off tube? Im a little worried with the amount of krausen already. I just got done cleaning 38 labels off the bottles. I have more soaking now. The Sam Winter Variety pack peeled off the best and the glue came right off too.. Oh and my pantry is starting to smell a bit hoppy

You probably don't need a blow off tube. My guess is the krausen won't get any higher. Yes, Sam Adams labels come off the easiest of all the commercial beers I drink.

Agree on the Sam Adams as well, just got through with a few myself tonight. I have to be pretty hard up for new bottles anymore to mess with other brands.

And then there was trouble. I decided to check on my batch one last time for a few days when I got home today... and this occured while I was gone.




Then I ran out to HD and made this contraption




There is sanitized water in the bottom and the tube is submerged in it. I also sanitized the tubing before I jammed it in the stopper. What do you think?

Wait till it calms down and put your air lock back on and then clean your hose while its still wet inside

+1. if it dries in the tube, you won't get it clean.
