    So this has never happened to me before, but I had my 1st explosive fermentation.

    I'm pretty sure this is because I have been slowly pushing the maximum of what I can squeeze into my conicals.

    I brewed the same size batch two weeks ago using Nottingham and didn't have an issue, that was fermented at 19'c.

    This week was with American Ale (Wyeast Labs #1056) [125.00 ml] at 20'c.

    Both were around the same SG.

    Just shows what 1'c and Liquid yeast can do.

    I knocked a tap slightly open on a full 19l keg in the garage without knowing a few weeks ago...
    It slowly emptied the whole 19l onto the garage floor before I found it a couple of days later.
