Ok....ahem. I accept any criticism as due.

Inadvertantly closed fermented.

3 batch day. 3rd batch brewed showing a friend "how to brew"......(or how not to)

sanitized the corny fermenter last minute. post was stuck...figured to pitch and then get the tools out.

Really stuck.....

figured to vent regularly.

day 2 krausen all over the wall.

day 3 some vented gas then foammmmm.

day 4 foam

day 7 foam (all from the gas post)

Figure that i have super carbed beer.

Should I decant into another keg? letting the foam become liquid?

Would all that co2 maybe harm the yeast? I would geg it out of there if possible.

Decanted to an Ale Pail with air lock. Lots of foam.

Some airlock activity, but probably from gassing off.
