I came home from work to find my airlock and bung on the floor and had a nice mess. I made an improv blow off tube in some star san and it worked great.
My question is now that the main fermentation is over, should I put my S style airlock back on or wld the tube be ok for the duration? I was gonna let it sit for 3 weeks then bottle. Never had to use a blow off tube and I didn't know if it was just for the start of fermentation.
Thanks in advance!
I had a similar question / problem... I used a small tube in where my 3 piece airlock fit... It's a nice tight fit but I don't know if I should swap the tube back to the airlock once things have died down a bit.... I am brewing wheat beer and it's quite a vigorous fermentation
Sorry to latch on to your thread but we have the same question
