Thanks for the photo! I love it.

I think it's funny that it's second nature to say, "Oh no! My ceiling is covered with stout!!!! Better get the camera!" while your significant other is yelling at you.

My best advice of all time, and I still stand by it, is "Paint your ceilings beer colored".

OK...I'll say it again!

AIRLOCKS DURING INITIAL FERMENTATION ARE DANGEROUS AND SILLY.

You are making a bomb! Let it vent! Just put a piece of foil on the carboy top, or a coffee cup upside down, anything but corking it tight w/ an airloock!

Nice! I blew the top on a 90min clone... Came home half in the bag, opened the front door of the house and was greeted with the smell of hops.... All over the kitchen, I mean, everywhere. The ceiling, the walls, everywhere. Then, when I put the lid on, I caught a blast of fermenting beer to the grill through the airlock hole. Ended up being a pretty good beer!
