Brewed a double batch of Northern Brewer's "Oak Barrel Porter" this weekend and pitched Wyeast English Ale that I built up into two starters. Glad I used blowoff tubes. It's the most energetic ferment I've ever seen. Here's a video.http://vimeo.com/user5623750/review/53854948/deb8b52af7
What is the fermentation temperature?
I know it just wouldn't be right to kill all the stupid people that we meet, but do you think it would be appropriate to just remove all of the warning labels and let nature take its course?
Life is tough. It's tougher if you're stupid.
I have found that dark beers always require a blowoff tube. For whatever reason they go crazy. Nice fermentation though!
Room temp is in the low 70's. After a collar for the keezer, the next project is an insulated fermentation chamber to cool that down some.
I brewed a big stout a couple weeks ago and it went crazy at around 62F. Blow off was a necessity
