Woke up to a small mess this morning. I truly did not think this spiced ale would go crazy like my imperial stout did. Lesson learned I'll NEVER use that yeast and NOT use a blowoff tube.
This batch now has a blowoff tube and things are going as planned.
Using a 6.5 gallon carboy for 5 gallon batches is a good idea, but regardless, if I'm brewing something new and don't know what to expect, I automatically use a blow off tube. It's really only needed for the first couple days though.
I just had a 1.071 OG finish in 2 days, down to 1.016. Of course pitching a 3.2b cell starter had a lot to do with it!
