Will do, good idea.I don't think you can jump straight to "bad instructions" when the people who wrote them couldn't possibly know how much fermenter head space you have.Ok, you are right, but I just assume that the majority of people who brew from a standard 5 gallon extract kit probably have either a starter kit bucket or a 5-6 gallon glass carboy and the amount of sugar in the kit which is all put in at once, combined with the high gravity Belgian yeast would blow the top on most people's setup. I would at least include a warning on a recipe of this type.
did you email this to the guys at NB? they might have just overlooked it and might add it to the instructions going forward. feedback helps sometimes.
