Oh, yeah, and good luck getting that stopper out of there.

You have a blowoff tube handy?

I hope that's not in the house! I'd be worried about the 3 piece clogging and the carboy grenading, though not as worried as I'd be about SWMBO finding out.

;tis in the bomb shelter, aka the basement... it will not explode. i can take the stopper out no problem... it will get rigged with a blow off when it starts getting nuts. but untill then, it's just sport.....

I only caught my latest Hobgoblin yesterday after arriving from work. It had started to gunk up my 3 peice and shoot out pure co2 from the tiny holes in the cover. I had my wife grab a towel while I watched for it to blow.
Luckily I caught it in time. Removed the cover and it started to spew lava like
krausen. Got a sanatized bung in with a blowoff hose and brought it into my basement.
Looking good today. Disaster averted.
I know I should have known better with using S-04 yeast slurry, but I did have 6 inches of headspace in there.
It's all but finished primary today. I figure a day or two at best will finish it. I'll rack this weekend.
