I actually cleaned it before I took a picture but here is

15 inches of Krausen on 12 gallons of beer.

No wonder with the shape of that fermentor. Was this the first time you used it? It reminds me of how a flask will boil over in a second because of the narrow neck.

What is that anyway? A 15 gallon demijohn without the basket? Looks cool but man, i bet it's a pain to move

Yeah it's a 15g demi. This is my 46 batch all in the demi's. The Krausen always rises but not usually this high. I mashed low to make an easy drinking summer ale.

I pump in from the kettle and the fermentation chamber is high enough I just siphon in to two cornys when it's ready.

+1 nice! shape shouldn't have much to do with it. more like aggressive yeast. Just have a blow off in reserve.

That's a cool fermenter. I'd surely drop that on my foot though. I'm paranoid with a handle, brew hauler and milk create. Nonetheless yours is awesome. What are demi's originally for? Wine?
