I use an old 5 gallon pail for a blowoff container, keeps me from having to babysit. Mine (when I do hefes in a 6.5 gallong carboy) blows off even at 64-66F. Like Yuri said, the temp is going to effect the flavor a lot, and the blowoff not-so-much...
Good luck, though, I hope you have a tasty brew. Maybe call it "no more babysitting Hefeweizen"!


Primary - California Common -finally!
Secondary - nothing, back after year plus hiatus
Keg carbing & conditioning - nada
Drinking - store bought: Loose Cannon IPA, Wachusett IPA.
On deck: Trying to decide (beer); wine kit likely (red wine)

The reason for the blow off tube is to allow for the crap to get out. If you have to change out the overflow vessel then so be it. It happens, not like it's that big of a deal.

well i got everything back to its original state and the aroma that i love so much has returned (Thank Goodness) and blowoff seems to have settled itself to a minn.

thanks for all the advice all and by the way i was listening to you all, somtimes you have to try it to belive it.

I love my beer the way i have been brewing it and i dont want to change it in any way, so ill keep babysitting for the first 4 days of fermentation as usual and enjoy what i love the most (My Great Beer).

Thanks agian and happy brewing to all!!
