Default Modded a blow-off tube

So I'm making a Chocolate Banana Stout. I came home to this dirty airlock

So I got creative because I wanted to keep the usability of my hose. I sawed off the top half of the airlock and the filter tip on the bottom (gets clogged)

you could have saved a little time and not pulled out the Dremel

I thought this was the standard method.

I had that originally but I couldn't get the tube out for a proper clean. This way I can. Totally works better for me

I did this to my first three piece airlock, except the inner tube and the nipple broke through the outer reservoir in a perfect concentric knock-out. It was quite amazing.
