Thar She Blows!

The Coopers Stout kicks out one hell of a big foamy krausen:

To deal with this mess, I pulled out the airlock cleaned and sanitised it, cleaned off the mess off the lid and stuck the airlock back in. It’s still foaming out of the airlock a little bit but under control.

Update: It settled down and stopped foaming out the airlock after one day.

    That’s one hell of a fermentation – the Stout certainly lives up to its name then huh! I’ve had bubbly white foam reach the top of my fermenter before but nothing that rivals that.

    I had a honemead brew come out and hit the ceiling through the air lock, upon more investigation the yeast printed in the recipe was 10 times the amount that should have been used.
    My goodness it made a mess, thankfully it was all cleaned up for me but have learnt that if it looks like too much yeast then it probably is and to do more investigation.
