Roustie II - Aroused!

Given another twelve hours, the Burton really finds its groove. In the standard 5 gallon carboy, a good portion of the bloom would be finding its way out through the blowoff. In the 6, there's just enough head space for the more violent stages of the ferment to take place without too much fuss.

4/5/06 ETA: Well, normally there's not too much fuss... This ferment appears to be particularly active, and last night saw a big yeast blow into the overflow. No harm done, but it did make me glad that I'm still using a blowoff tube instead of relying solely on airlocks. If it's calm by this evening, I'll be switching to a clean airlock filled with cheap vodka.
