Wow. That's some seriously dark wort. Did you actually get this up to 1.113, or is that just the estimate?

Uh oh, no blow-off tube on a 1.113 brew on top of an entire yeast cake? Lesson learned, hehe. Fermcap-S is also your friend to control Krausen. I use it in EVERY brew.

I still bet it turns out amazing. Just lost some product, that's all.

Nico, di dove sei? Ho studiato al milano e firenze per sette mesi, sei anni fa. La birra Citta Vecchia era la birra che mi ha convinto di fare produzione di birra. Avete mai bevuto?

P.S. Scusame, il mio italiano non e molto bene dopo tanti anni.

@solbes: wat can I use in a 1113 beer in place of the blow off?
P. S. I had never head about foam cap, I read o Google that is useful for big beers! I am going to buy it!

@freddy: vivo a Varese, vicino a Milano anche se in settimana vivo a Milano per andare all universitÓ!
Non ho mai bevuto quelle birre anche se ne ho sentito parlare! :-)

A blow off tube is almost manditory in a 1.113" beer pitched onto an entire yeast cake. Good news is you will liekly get great attenuation out of your yeast without becoming stuck. But all that sugar being dumped onto all of that yeast will result in a pretty voilent fermentation. Mine blew like crazy and it was 1.105.

Fermcap-S, about 10 drops in 5 gallons will control most fermentations, though likely not a big RIS like that. Might reduce losses out of the blow off tube though.

The density is dropped down to 1060 in 24 hours :O
Does the fermcap causes problems to the foam in the glass when I drink the beer?
Thanks for the help :-)

Edit: 1040, and it is gurglin very slow :-)
