I'm brewing my second batch. Brewed it yesterday and put the primary in my bathroom. Well about midnight last night I went to use the bathroom and looked over and saw a bunch of foam coming out of the air lock. OK I thought this is just very active fermentation, I've read about this. So I went and got a hose, a container half full of water and a bucket to catch any over flow if it got really active. I did all the cleaning needed and got to it. Well the hose wouldn't fit tightly in the air lock hole. I'm just using bucket system. So I tried putting tape around the hose to increase it's OD. Well I never could get a good seal. So I said "screw it" I'll clean the air lock back up and put the darn thing in my bath tub. If it foams over it'll just go down the drain. Well this morning I woke to a hissing/whistling noise. I thought OK the air lock needs to be cleaned again, no big deal. So I stumbled into the bathroom, eyes still half closed. Opened the shower curtain, bent over and pulled the air lock out. WHOOSH!!! A fountain of foam and beer shot out the hole and NAILED me right in the face! Well I'm awake now! Felt just like a sorority girl, dumb, sinking of beer and my face was all sticky. Really enjoying the learning curve now. Thought you all could use a funny story. If there is a good thread on this problem just point me to it. Some one must make a tapered rubber bung that will hold a hose out there somewhere. Ideas and advise welcome.
