My blowoff needs a blowoff
Made my first barleywine. I pitched about 5.5 gallons of 1.085 (missed OG of 1.101) onto a fresh yeast cake of WPL001. Fast bubbling in 2 hours. My blowoff is a 1/2" vinyl tube into a 16 oz glass 1/2 full of star san. It usually suffices. The next morning it had blown yeast and star san all over the inside of my freezer. I swapped the glass for a big bowl of star san. The bubbles sound like a machine gun. Probably 5-8/second.
I almost suffocated when I put my head down into the freezer to clean up the mess. It must have been pure CO2 in there.
I can't wait to taste this one.
