+1... Beer porn! I love the blown out fermenter pics. I've done about 8 batches now and have not seen a blowout yet. (Noob)

That's like...almost beer porn! This batch has nearly stopped bubbling now. Feels pretty early. If its stopped by the end of the day, should I check the gravity? If its not up to expectation, can I give it a gentle rock?

Blowoff pictures?! We're in 2013 and demand our beer porn in hi-def video format!

Not mine, but the "sleepy WTF just happened" tone in this guy's voice is great:

Yea its not recommended to do starters with dry yeast
rehydration is all thats needed and some would argue that
