Sure. Others have also suggested laying a star san soaked towel over the fermenter.

What size fermenter, how much beer, what kind of yeast, how big of beer?

These things, among others like pitching rate, temp, etc.. can have a big impact on the amount of Krausen...

Eek. That's hot. For the future, you'll get a less explodey (and tastier) fermentation if you rein in the temps a bit.

Yeah I didnt know it was going to run that hot. My last brew (2.5 gallons) was kinda big, but didn't have temp issues, maybe due to volume?

I put a couple inches of water in the sink and a frozen 2 liter bottle of water to try to coax the temps back down

Anymore, I cool the wort to about 62 degrees before pitching the yeast.. Then I ferment in the coolest room in the house.. I let the yeast bring the temp up.... Everything seems much more manageable since I started doing that, and the beer is better...

Once I build a ferment chamber, I plan to never let the ferment get above 64-66....

At 76 degrees, I'm thinking you will probably get some fusels... Especially with a higher gravity beer... Plan on letting it sit on the yeast for some extra time, and give it a lot of time to condition...

Hopefully, the yeast and time will clean everything up for you... It will definitely help...

Should I let it sit in the bottle longer at room temp or in the fridge a bit longer after carbing?

It has only been just over twenty-four hours, so once I cool things down I'm hoping to be in the clear as far as ruining the batch ...

Thanks for the helps!
