Default New Dead Guy with 1/2 gal pacman starter

well i just finished brewing my dead guy clone, i made the starter in a 5 gal carboy. at first i was worried with all the air space, however it wasnt a problam at all. the air alock was stall popping when i pitched it. the crazy thing was i normal get some lag time. my last stater picked up i about 6 hrs, but it was only two cups. well the thing that made my draw drop was while i was clean i noticed that the beer was already popping. it couldnt have been more then 30-40 mins and has started up. well i figure i may be on watch for the night to make sure this carboy doesnt blow all over the office.

well i dont know about any record but.. its popping away. for a bit i thought that it didn't mix well an the starter was sitting on the foam head for aireating. so i gave it a couple of soft shake to make sure it mixed down through the foam. and it still dont. i timed it right now at a pop every 53 seconds. i dont know does this sound werid to you guys? i was only cleaning for like i said 30 -40 mins and i noticed that the air lock was popping. well to be on the safe side its in a 6.5 gal carboy and i have towels setup around the room to protect stuff. well ill keep you all posted later today

You might want to think about a blow off- it sounds pretty vigorous. I'm brewing my Dead Guy tomorrow- I made about 1/2 gallon starter and I'm thinking blowoff tube for sure. I already cleaned up one mess (albeit small) this week.

My last four beers have been with Pacman and I haven't had any blowoff situations. My last beer was a slurry repitch and I also had activity within an hour.

Each beer has been pretty much the same. I get about a two inch krausen that almost gets to the slope of a 6 gallon carboy and stays put. For each beer I used a 1/2 gallon starter except for a 60 Schilling Scottish Ale that had a 1.039 SG.

I have been so spoiled by Pacman fermentations, I didn't bother with a blowoff tube when I did a Kölsch last week. Sure enough, I had krausen in the airlock.
