Default Woo Hoo I've got blowoff!

I had what I hope to be one of my last extract batches to do so I went ahead on a beautiful day and brewed it up. Everything seem to go very well. I piched a decanted starter of dark DME and White Labs abbey ale yeast(wlp530). At around 3 pm I pitched the yeast aerated and put it in its new home. I checked it around 9:45pm and I had some activity

I was happy to see some activity. Its a little easier to see the head space in the mirror behind the carboy. 40 minutes later I checked it again cause I can and holy crap that was fast

So I set up my ghetto blow off tube on the better bottle, and went to bed. I still don't have a better option for a bigger tube yet. Either way here she is now going crazy

I'm just really happy and most people I talk to are just like that's cool and I'm super excited

That is very exciting to see the beer happily bubbling away. Nothing wrong with showing everyone. Though I half expected to see pics of beer staining your ceiling.
