Default Can I get a blow off?

I was reading in another thread that "most batches with a healthy fermentation need more than 6.5 gallons of space." I've been brewing for several years now, lots of brews, and have never even come close to a blow off. I'm jealous.

So I guess my question is, what causes a vigorous fermentation?

I want what this guy has!!

lots of sugar and heat and good healthy yeast can do that, although the heat part may not be as desirable...
