    Blow-off Tube Issue

    Hello, everyone. I brewed an APA about a week ago, and have had the end of the blow-off tube submerged in sanitized water the whole time. This morning, I went in to add some dry hops, and noticed that the tube fell out of the water. I looked at everything yesterday, and all was well, so I know...

    This Sucks!!!!

    Had my US05 at 21*C on a Diacetyl Rest. Then dropped the temp to 14*C as part of my dry hopping schedule. The subsequent reduction of temp in the FV sucked a good pint of starsan up through the blow off tube!!!! Anyone have any tips for preventing this? Other than paying attention!!! Some kind...

    I have been lurking here for a while and typically find an answer to any question i may have but came up short on this one. I wanted to reciprocate sharing the wealth of knowledge i have gained on this forum over the years. I recently upgraded from glass carboys to SS BrewTech brew buckets...

    Blow off tube alternative

    So my airlock has been "bubbled up" into and filling with yeasty bi-product three times and I don't have quick access to a blow-off tube. Should I just keep cleaning and re-sanitizing it or is there something else I can do? Also, the temperature has been in the 66-70 range the whole time...

    Top cropping with blow off tube

    Brewing NB's Bavarian Hefeweizen with WY 3068. Needed to install a blow off assembly even though I'm using the big fermentor. Late the second night after pitching there was pure yeast being pushed through the S-style air lock. I like to harvest so I thought why not harvest this yeast. Installed...

    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...

    My 4th brew experience

    Let me start by saying that this was a partial mash kit for an Irish Stout. It was a kit and came with the grains pre milled, (locally) and 7lbs of Dark LME. This is the third kit that I have used from my LHBS and the first two turned out ok. I only say Ok because the first was way too hoppy for...

    Imperial Stout Blowout Question

    Brewed Northernbrewer's Imperial Stout on Monday night. Woke up this morning and went to take a look and unbelievably, the blow-off tube had... blown off. Fortunately, not a huge mess, just kind of a slow foamy volcano kind of thing coming out of the top and running down the sides. However, this...
