The most recent 1.120 Impy stout that I brewed in my fermentation chamber started at 62F and blew off over a gallon of krausen through the blow off hose. They can be extremely volatile fermentations.  I wonder what temp he pitched at?

Been there, done that, cleaned up... It's always the Imp Stouts, never a lighter ale of same OG.  Must be the dark grains...

My last Imperial Stout produced a gallon of krausen, but still remained in the fermenter.

That was funny! You don't forget these things. I remember coating a bathroom with my first hefe-weizen. Except I was awoken in the wee hours with the sound of the airlock geysering beer and yeast! That was without a starter BTW...

I think it is cool to document these things.

Reminds me of when I was a lttle kid my older brother made some root beer. Every once in a while a bottle would explode in the basement. When you opened one you'd end up with about 1/4 of the bottle left. Could have used them the 4th of July for fireworks.

I found that to be absolutely hysterical!  Especially since my first batch, an IPA, overflowed a little, and the OG was only 1.072. 

Seems you need to leave extra space for the high kreusen on certain beers!
