Regarding room in your carboy: put a blowoff tube in there, especially if you're fermenting @ room temp. I noticed my first brew (which fermented way too hot) was the only one that actually blew krausen through the airlock.

the subsequent brews, @ 63ish Farenheit, haven't made it to the top of my buckets yet.

Is your blowoff tube going into a full jug of water? If there's no space in the jug then you're going to have a mess if that water jug fills up. You need just an couple inches of sanitizer in there so when the carboy blows off there's some place for the kraussen to go. I've filled up 22 oz bomber bottles with yeast and stuff before during an active ferment.
