How do you brew more beer when you use your brew kettle for the blowoff tube???

I use a milk jug with about 1/4 full of star san. It can get gross and I don't want that crap in my brew kettle. But yes...that length of tube looks good. I like having my tube go directly into the hole in the lid. I think it's 5/16 OD tube that fits.

Lol that's all I have to use right now. The wife won't let me use her pots and I don't have an empty milk jug right now. It's so wired thought I installed the blow off tube and now it's not blowing over any more, and it's venting so slow I hope I didn't ruin it at all.

No,it's not ruined. Initial fermentation is usually over when all the insane bubbling slows or stops. It'll then slowly,uneventfully creep down to FG. Then give it 3-7 days to clean up & settle out clear or slightly misty.
