Hi all, if I have a blow-off tube, can I ferment a five gallon batch in a six gallon carboy?

Cool. I think it's only a six gallon carboy, but was hoping to use it to brew my next batch with a blow-off tube. Thanks all. :)

I did my first 5g batch in a 6.5g fermenter and had no problems just using a 3-piece airlock.
