I almost had a blowout with my dunkel last month... had krausen in airlock, and it was stuck to the lid. Airlock almost clogged. Wife would have been pissed!

OTH, you're not a REAL brewer until you've used a mop on the ceiling.......
I seriously hope I'm never a real brewer.
Left tap: Myrd's IPA
Right tap: Heffeweizen
Kegged: Blimey's ESB, Apfelwein, Ed's Haus Pale Ale
Fermenting: Air, but soon to be Ode-to-Arthur and more Apfelwein.
