Ok, it's not a blowout. But it came damn close! There's yeast in the airlock...

Happens all the time to me, even with FermCap-S. But then again, I'm putting 5.75-6 gallons in a 6 gallon better bottle.

Wow, that's impressive. I ferment 2.5 gallons in 3 gallon carboys and haven't had a blowoff in them yet, but this is making me wonder about having 0.5 gallons of clearance... Was it high-gravity?

This was at 1.040 so not a big beer. Someone mentioned that it does this when fermented at a higher temp, this was at 70.
