I made the mistake of not starting out with a blowoff tube in a new carboy that is almost full. I woke up at about three a.m. last night to find the air lock full of beer and pouring a little over the side. I quickly cleaned the air lock and rubber stopper and put it back in - went back to bed. This morning it had happened again - whereupon I started using the blow off hose. My question is, do you think that this will affect the quality of my beer (a belgian wit) or potentially infect it?
