Duck & Cover! I always knew them ruskies would go nuclear one day. Just never thought it would be with a beer. (And does anyone else remember thier teachers telling them that your desk would save you from a nuclear strike? Sorry, my age is showing)

Over night I dropped the temp down, it is at 61 F now and only has about an inch of krausen. Put the lid on and it is bubbling nicely.
