When To Switch From Drain Hose To Airlock?

Question:

Is it advisable to switch from drain hose to an air lock at any time during fermentation in a closed system? it is now 60 hours since pitching yeast and drain hose run off is minimal.

Answer:

If I use a blow-off tube (which I often do), I will switch it over to an airlock as soon as the foam starts to drop back. Just make sure you keep everything sanitized well.
