Ok, it's not a blowout. But it came damn close! There's yeast in the airlock...

Wow Nice

Happens all the time to me, even with FermCap-S. But then again, I'm putting 5.75-6 gallons in a 6 gallon better bottle.

It does that at a warmer temp.

Good to know, this was at 70

Wow, that's impressive. I ferment 2.5 gallons in 3 gallon carboys and haven't had a blowoff in them yet, but this is making me wonder about having 0.5 gallons of clearance... Was it high-gravity?

I made an imperial stout last Friday.. when I came down Saturday it had blown off the cap to the airlock and the little bubbler device.. It also left some on my 8ft high ceiling....

This was at 1.040 so not a big beer. Someone mentioned that it does this when fermented at a higher temp, this was at 70.
