I am speaking of intentionally using a 5 gallon carboy for the specific purpose of leaving no room for the krausen so it goes out the blowoff, I think many people didn't realize that is what I was asking...

Purposely remove krausen, or purposely allow it to fall back into the wort?

Again guys, check out a "Burton Union" . The burton union purposely captures the krausen for harvest but also returns the wort to the carboy.

Our English friends have been doing this for centuries.
