Hate to break it to you but this whole forum is based on the production of chemicals namely ethanol, with hopefully not to many esters and aldehydes thrown in .

OK so I woke up this morning to the Apfelwein bubbling and flowing into the airlock. I guess I didn't leave enough room in the carboy. I had to take off the airlock, thief some out of the fermenter to make more room and them replace the airlock. I did sneek a taste though...good stuff so far.

Thats wierd when I did my batch I nearly filled my 5 gallon carboy to the rim and did not come close to having a blow out. I followed Ed's recipe exactly.

Yeah I did too. I left about an inch of room and this morning it wasbubbling and flowing into the airlock. No big deal though, I caught it in time that it didn't spill. But yeah I was surprised as well.

My 1st batch filled the whole airlock. This next one has considerably more space it shouldn't happen this time. I'm waiting to see the bottom of the s-lock completely suspended by CO2. I'm on day three with a million bubbles coming up already.

Wow what a difference 55'F vs 70'F!!!
