The carboy runneth over
So I woke up late today and wandered downstairs to take a peek at my two news brews. The pumpkin ale in the living room was just starting to bubble a bit in the airlock but when I went downstairs and looked in the beer closet my mouth dropped to the floor. There was yeast and foam and kreuzen everywhere. The top/airlock on the carboy had been shot to the other side of the closet. So I hurriedly cleaned and sanitized what I could and then stuck some hose on the airlock and buried the other end in a bucket of starsan water. What a mess! Put the cap on a brewing weekend gone awry that's for sure.
