This talk of not using glass because of explosion possibilities is amazing.
Let me describe how I do it. I use a 7 gal glass carboy for the primary and
fill it to 5.5 gal at the most. An airlock is sufficient, and the foam rarely
gets up to the top. Then I rack into a 5 gal secondary full up and allow the
beer to condition. NO PROBLEMS! The blow-off tube is not used, it's not
needed. The resulting beers are fine.
