Subject: Blow-off method
Date: 1990-04-17 15:15:00 GMT

I've been brewing using the open ferment (garbage can) method, with good
results, but I'd like to try a closed ferment (is this the same as the
blow-off?). Papazian says to pitch the yeast in the carbuoy, and then seal
it with a water seal, but then where does the blow-off take place? If you
did'nt seal it but put a blow-off tube instead, when *do* you seal it? Does
the blow-off tube need a water seal (like the end of it underwater in a blow-off
jar) too? You see I have a few questions; any help would be appreciated.
