too much foam
I have searched the forum but cannot find an answer.
I Started my first ever brew about 24 hours ago, using a Coopers dark.
I followed directions, ~4L hot tap water, stir in the kit+malt, added ~16L cold/cool water, stirred it up nicely, added the yeast, put the lid on.
However, what I didnt realise was the wort bucked is just for stirring, I had no airlock on top, so this morning the lid was ready to blow. I relieved some pressure, called a friend, to which he said put it in the Carbide with airlock. So i cleaned the carbide carfully and siphoned the wort into it, stuck on the airlock with a little water in it.
Now I have a mess, 8 hours later I come home and its just way to much foam. I took the airlock off and just let it all come out. It is bubbling very fast, about 3 tablespoons a minute come out the top.
I'm not sure why there is so much foam, is it because of the transfer I did (should have done it after mixing was complete.
Also, one more thing, does the yeast go in AFTER I transfer to the carbide?
