I looked in my airlock this morning and it was all murky. I figure the krazen blew up into the air lock that was filled with vodka. The plastic piece is still submerged below the liquid line, but should I change out the murk for vodka or just leave it?

Do you have an extra airlock? (I have about 15!) If you do, just swap for a sanitized clean one. If not, you could pull it off, clean and resanitize it and refill if you want to.

Just put some sanitized aluminum foil on it while you go clean it. A blow off hose is much better though and it will not clog.
