Use a blowoff tube.

Wyeast doesn't really have a "starter" in it, it's really just some nutrients to determine whether it's live yeast.

But a blowoff tube will dump your extra mess into a bucket, pot, or jar.

Thanks! Luckily it looks like it's chilled out now but that's on the shopping list for the next batch.

If you use a 2 piece airlock, you can use a tube that attaches to the inside of the airlock. So a one dollar investment. But it's hard to remove from airlock in my experience.

Tapped a keg of this this weekend that I brewed back in January. Tried it side by side with a bomber of Dead Guy and it is very close. Thanks for the great recipe Yooper.

About to brew my 3rd batch of a version of this beer over the past 12 months. Since I've only brewed about 20 times total, it's quickly becoming my house ale

I do AG and use the exact grain bill provided in the first post. Can't find Pacman here, so use 1272 instead. Used all Perle in my first batch and it was amazing. Used Perle and Amarillo the 2nd time, and it was similarly amazing

I've now got Perle and Saaz in my inventory, so I'll probably use the exact recipe this time around (except for the 1272 for PacMan subsitution). Thanks for the recipe!

My LHBS does not carry Pacman, so I'm curious if there is a consensus recommendation as to an alternate yeast for this beer (I know, it is highly unlikely there is a "consensus" anything when it comes to such topics.) I am brewing Sunday -- probably going to play it safe with 1056 or S-05 unless Yooper or someone else has a different recommendation. WY 1272 perhaps?

I couldn't get Pacman either, so I used WLP001 California Ale with reasonable results on recommendation of the LHBS guy.
