Haha, oh well.
Yeah, you're not But it's supposed to be thought about... I'll pretty much explain it at 6:00 EDT (1:15 from now).

Yeast blowoff into a starter for krausening?

Maybe I'm more unclear than I thought. Forget the krausen. The point is, a 5gal glass carboy is deliberately being used for a primary, and it was filled far more than a typical primary ought to be. Normally I would primary in a 6.5gal plastic bucket, but not this time.

Consider what reason I might have for doing so, and what style would probably have the most to benefit from it.

(Still giving the next clarification in 45 minutes)

Haha, eagerly awaiting the next clue. I'm definitely stumped.

No kidding!

Jeeze, this better be something really obscure and not a 'cream ale' or something.

You use fermcap in your fermentors and are showing off?

Okay, this is gonna be a letdown, but I decided to make a fairly minor clarification!

I normally ferment in 6.5gal plastic buckets.

This time, I decided to ferment in a 5gal glass carboy.

I have 5gal plastic buckets, and I also have a 6.5gal glass carboy. So it's not just that I chose the 5gal carboy strictly because it's smaller, or strictly because it was glass instead of plastic. Both of the factors were important to me.

This must be an aspect of brewing that I'm not yet familiar with because it still doesn't tell me anything. I can see if you normally ferment in glass and you switched to plastic on purpose what you might be going for but I'm still at a loss.

Best of luck to everyone else.

For the sake of a backwards guess, I'll say a sour?

Can't really think of any reason for that aside from a lager that you want to have little headspace but don't feel like racking to a secondary

Or the fact that glass won't hold infections/bugs like plastic can.
