Yeah I highly recommend a big fermenter for this from now on. My 5.5g batch had about 2-3 gallons of krausen on top. So my 10G fermenter was plenty and didn't have one bit of blow off.

Also the other thing I decided go with for next time is hopshot at 90min instead of hop pellets. Will keep more beer that way instead of using 5-6 oz of hops.

I'm drinking some of my first try in a mere 18 days. Whoohoo! Fermented back in Feb.

Well the three small bottles I set aside to see how it was in three month increments got progressively better. Last one I had was in July or August. If they were any indication this RIS will be a supurb hit for christmas with my family.

Lets hope it is so. I get nervous when I hear of somebody brewing a recipe I came up with. I feel responsible in some way if it doesn't turn out. So, I hope it is absolutely top notch.

Just finished cleaning up from brewing the 5 gallon extract verison. OG 1.124. Divided it between two 6.5 gallon fermenters. Crossing fingers for no blow off!

That's what I did and I had a huge mess on my hands. Rig up a blow off if it's not too late.
