I brewed the Brickwarmer holiday Red extract kit this Sunday afternoon and pitched the yeast Sunday evening in my 6.5 gallon carboy. By the time I got home from work yesterday, it had gone crazy and had fermented completely through the blowoff tube into my bucket. :lol: My question now is sanitation from this point on as this is the first time I’ve gotten such an active fermentation.
My other two 5 gallon carboys are both in use so I can’t transfer this to secondary yet. Can I take the tube off, clean it and re-sanitize it and clean out the water bucket and replace everything as it is? Or would I be better off just leaving it until I have a secondary carboy available after bottling this weekend?
I’d put an airlock on it because it has dropped back down but both of those are in use at the moment as well. (seems like I need more gear again :twisted: )
