Yeah... my fiancee and I had our house warming party last weekend. Copious amounts of homebrew & apfelwein were consumed, things were broken, mistakes were made, ups were hooked and a great time was had by all.

to Ed & his Apfelwein!

Default Blow-over on this 5-gal Carboy??



Apparently 5gal doesn't really mean 5gal. My second batch of Edwort's Apfelwein — first time I used a 6gal carboy, this time a 5gal.

I couldn't fit all the cider in — see the pic, I'm concerned I'm going to get some blow-over on this batch.

What do you guys think?

First time I used the Red Star Montrachet yeast, this time I'm trying out White Labs English Cider Yeast.

Should I prepare a blow-over tube?

Thanks,
Ben

ok i am a newb just sayin, but if my 5 gallons of apfelwein looked like that when fermentation started it would have blown my airlock clean off. i didnt get alot of kreusen, but definitely more then can fit in there.l but remember, I AM a newb so who really knows haha

I'm having the same problem, my bubbler is full of juice, I emptied it but now when I woke up its full again and still gurgling. What should I do?? what is the risk of contamination? I put vodka in the air lock

I always put one on at first just to be safe.I don't see it would hurt to do it just save the trouble of a blow off.

I had a "blow over" issue on my current batch on Apple cider. I also used the English Cider yeast and had to install a blow off tube for about a week....
