On Sunday we brewed at 10 gallon all-grain batch of a pale ale. Our fermentation bucket is not airtight - it does not seal. I did go ahead and but an airlock on it anyway just in case. Ive been checking it off and on and it has been an active fermentation.

However I went outside this morning and looked to see how it was going and we had an overflow. A pretty decent sized one. Now most of it looks as if it was the yeast type build up/ sediment. However some beer couldve gotten out as well.

What do I have to worry about? Ive never had this happen before - usually we just do 5 gallon batches. Its our first shot at a 10 gallon batch.

Should do we anything to help this batch? Precautions for the next?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks

Get a bigger bucket.
