Just curious if anyone has had a similar experience with US-05 and Maris Otter. Brewed an Irish Red last week, basically following Jamil's recipe from BCS. 11.25 lbs. of Maris Otter, 6 oz. each of roasted barley, crystal 40 and crystal 120. Came out high on my OG (1.064), so I pitched 2 packs of US-05 because I hadn't made a starter.
It was fermenting well within 8 hours, and by the end of day 2, I came home to find an airlock full of wort and krausen! Swapped out a blow-off tube, and it continued pretty violently for the next couple of days. It has settled down now (day 6), but I'm wondering if that's common for Maris Otter, or US-05? I don't know why, but I pictured and nice quiet, slow rolling fermentation and was surprised to get what looked more like what you see with wheat beers.
