Just made some edworts apfelwein and it started fermenting last nite sometime. Got up this morning and it had bubbled into the airlock. It is still bubbling so should i wait and clean out the airlock later or just leave it. Or should i clean it out immediately. Any ways just another dumb a newbie question. Thanks for all the help.

+1 on the blow off. If you don't have the tubing on hand, I would just clean it out after it stops bubbling into the airlock. Otherwise you may be cleaning it a lot. Just make sure you have vodka or sanitizer in the airlock.
