I made an IPA 2 sundays ago and it is still bubbling every minute out of the blow off tube. The OG was 1055. I think I fermented it a little high (72) at the start. Any idea what going on?

bubbles only = out gassing not fermentation
take a gravity reading, if it is still going down the yeast are still working, RDWHAHB, Relax Dont Worry Have A Home Brew

I dont even bother checking gravity for at least 10 days after pitching (unless there seems to be a problem). With my Stout, I checked gravity before pitching yeast and then forgot about it for 3 weeks, checked gravity and still had a couple points to go, I had to warm and swirl, but thats a story for another day.

"warm and swirl" sounds like a band name.

either that or a very mean thing you could do to someone.
