    How do you clean blow off tubing?

    Using a length of vinyl PVC 5/16th x 7/16th as blow off tubing. It got full of krausen. I tried soaking it in Star San for a week but it's still gunked up. I don't think pipe cleaners would be an effective way to clean it due to its length. Solutions?

    No Suckback Blowoff System Dilemma

    I put together this blow off system that should prevent suck back and oxygen from entering the fermenter during cold crash. I can do two things: add sanitizer to the first jar, keep the 'in' hose connected to the short tube and the 'out' hose connected to the long tube. This way the CO2...

    Live, Learn, & Pass It On... But seriously, will I poison myself?

    Hey all, I've been cold crashing a DIPA in the fermenter, bringing it down 10F/day to 36F. Went to take a look and realized that I should have disconnected the blow-off tube, because the lowering temp caused suction (new lesson for me!), it sucked the StarSan that I had in a 1gal jug into the...

    Top cropping yeast, keg ferment under pressure or blowoff?

    Hello everyone, I've been fermenting in 5 gal kegs for a while always going for max 4.5 gal to leave some head space. At the moment my setup consists of a simple ballock with silicon tubing on it that goes into a jar with sanitizer. I'm used to ferment with s04 and so far never had any clogging...

    Blow off tube best practices

    You should use a tube large enough to carry the foam/hops without clogging. You should use a container capable of holding all the FOAM that may come out of the fermenter (generally 1/2 -1 gal) for a 5-10 gal batch. After all, we have a really active ferment too vigorous for a regular airlock...

    Replacing airlock for blow off tube, mid-fermentation?

    Hi peeps - looking for some quick advice... I brewed a cream ale last night and used a Better Bottle carboy for fermentation, since the bucket is already in use. Now I see the krausen action coming through the airlock - not necessarily making a big mess (yet), but going pretty steady. I...
