I am at work and won't be home until tomorrow around noonish. My wife smelled beer and decided to take a look in the closet and found this surprise. I rehydrated the yeast in this batch, my first batch I did not. This batch is an Octane IPA (OG 1.069). The airlock has stopped bubbling mostly as of now. This happened over night on day 2 of fermentation, today is day 3. I guess next time I should rig a blowoff tube for high gravity beers and rehydrating yeast right? Will this be ok until i get home? My wife cleaned the airlock lid with a warm wash cloth because the foam was crusted over and the airlock was not venting anymore. She won't take it off and replace the starsan inside it because she's afraid of messing something up. Will this be ok for another 18 hours or so? Thanks!
