This happened over a year ago, but I never managed to get around to posting it. This is what happens when you pitch the correct amount of Wyeast 1010 yeast, aerate properly and FORGET TO LEAVE ENOUGH HEADROOM in your FV.

This was after 12-16 hours...

Yeah, that was the first and last time I plan on cleaning every surface above a FV. Also, the lid is how I found it, talk about pressure/force.

It's possible, I had the apartment set at 66 (small apartment, good air circ) so internally it may have gotten up to around 75 or so.
