Yep, the last batch came out at 5.9% abv. (darn barley crusher ).

It can be dangerous.

OK, I admit that I have had a bomb several times (36 years of brewing). Recently I had beer running out the garage door and it was at 62F too. I used yeast from the Brewery near me and it took off right away. It got outright violent during the night and when I looked in the morning it was running out the refrigerator door and under the garage door and down the driveway.

At least you have a good source of wild yeast now

I keged that beer and I am going to use some of this on the next batch. The conical I got it from in the brewery was just finishing fermenting and so it was really ready to go. I think I used to much (it's just like dynamite). Whoooo Hooooo.

Just sitting around the house and you hear a low hollow "thwump" noise. 10 seconds later it dawns on you what it might be and you go running in fear. Not fear of the mess, but fear that your batch might get contaminated!

Then of course I just did a hefe (paulaner clone) with a hefty starter and put it in the 6.5 carboy with a fat blowoff and only got maybe 2 inches of krausen.
Woke me up one night. I laid there thinking "what the hell" for a few seconds, then lept from the bed scaring the hell out of SWMBO, fearing the possibility of contamination.

My last wheat repitched onto a cake from the previous batch with almost blew off, I thought would go crazy. Not so, maybe 2 inches.
