I don't normally fit an airlock these days but 4-5 hours later it was bubbling constantly and is now down to every 20-30 seconds, I do love the sound of the airlock happily bubbling away.
I've only had one stout go berserk. I had to remove it from the fridge and clean the fridge out. All, 5 or 6 at least have all been fine. I have no idea why though.

If it's the Coopers stouts you are doing, the Original and the Irish come with different yeasts. The Original yeast is much more lively and finishes quickly and if you dont brew short will 'overflow' as I found. The Irish is much more sedate in comparison. However both attenuate about the same. I prefer the Irish, much smoother imo.

It's the original I use every time with dark ale as a toucan. Both kit yeasts.
As I said only one has ever tried to escape the FV.

I might try the Irish one as my Irish neighbour doesn't like the toucan.

Bottled the treacle stout last night, tastes lovely already, and very very dark . Going to enjoy this one over the winter methinks. Back in the brew fridge to carbonate, will have a proper sample in about a month.
