IPA on the whole cake

A while back someone asked about over-yeasting. This is 8 hours after the explosion.

The obscene part was all that ale that went on the walls and down the drain. Must have lost a couple quarts.

Or "Why blow-off tubes exist"

My last batch I pitched on a health yeast cake in my 6.5 gal carboy. The krausen filled my blow-off tube and was kicking stuff into the bucket. Keep in mind I use 1" vinyl tubing. I'd hate to see what would have happened if I used the usual airlock

"Thar she blows!"

that is amazing. I certainly didn't get that kind of action from my brew...but I didn't get a lot of mess to clean up either. I guess there is a trade off.

Did this result happen because you used way to much live yeast at once and it fermented your sugar to quickly or did you choose a container to small?

holy crap! I've never had an explosion like that - never used a blowoff tube although I did buy one - but with my vanilla cream ale I found the airlock a few feet away from the bucket when it first started kicking. But I guess that's just co2, not the krausen.
