As I posted in another thread, I had a near catastrophe fermenting my frst ever high-gravity beer. After my Saison started to ferment, I ALMOST blew the lid off of my fermenter (and subsequently learned about blow-off tubes).
I had read about doing a secondary fermentation, common to high-gravity Belgians, but I am now afraid of a TRUE explosion, being that my secondary is a 5 gal. glass carboy, and for now, I don't have a way to attach a blow-off tube.
Any suggestions, comments, ideas, etc. ???
