the air lock on the fermenter is filling up with the wine and spewing out. I just started it yesterday. it was bubbling just fine and now its spewing out the air lock. I opened the lid and cleaned the wine from air lock and replaced, it is still trying to fill up and spew out of air lock.
Sounds as if you put an air lock on the primary (is this abucket fitted with a lid or a carboy) since you said you just started it. If so and it's in a carboy then you can remove the air lock so that more CO2 can escape without causing a mess if in a bucket, just remove the lid. Most people use an open bucket for this first step so that more oxygen can be stirred into the must(twice daily). When the SG has droped to 1.020-1.010 you should rack to a carboy and then add the air lock.
