If there is no activity yet and its within 8-12 hours or so I would risk moving it to the bucket. If you can't put a blowoff on that carboy I would be amazed if you didn't a nightmare roof covering volcano at some point.

Just be as careful as you can moving it along try your best to not splash etc. And of course be sanitary!

PS if you can't or decide not to and vesuvius erupts please send us photos!

I took some off the top, hoping I don't get the volcano effect. If I do I will post pictures. Here is what it looks like now, I don't want to take to much out so im hoping this will do!

I'm not familiar with the yeast strain Bobby's using, but if I'd ferment on the cooler side of the strain and attempt to minimize the mess. If i had a carboy that fulll and i was using the chico strain, i'd be dropping the temp to 58-59 after fermentation started, and raising it back to 70 after the krausen started to drop.

as long as there is not visible fermentation activity, it's OK to splash since splashing = aeration. there is some additional risk of infection, but it should be pretty low.

? I keep it fermenting in my bedroom so the last thing I want is a volcano. The Carboy is 6 gallons, I believe the bucket is 7.5 gallons. I am using Wyeast 3787 high gravity ale yeast, it said pitch around 70-75 is that to high?[/QUOTE]

Your bedroom is going to smell so gooooood......

As expected, she blew! It wasn't bad though, luckily. I came home from work with a little mess to clean but I stopped at my local brew store and picked up some items to make a better blowoff. I also dropped the temp to 61-62f. I can't say you guys didn't warn me!

was this a recipe? how did you get to 6 gallons of wort in the first place? a white IPA may not be the easiest first beer, especially fermented at room temp and likely weakened by 1 gal of extra water (assuming you were targeting a 5gal batch?)

should be interesting.
