Never used this strain before. After reading up on its potential for stalling I took the following measures: Made a healthy starter, pitched warmer, used an opened ferment (carboy with just some sterilized foil covering mouth of the bottle), placed carboy in a hot water heater closet with temps in the 80's, fingers crossed.
My question: After all these years of homebrewing I've never really had an overflow problem. Call me very lucky. Alas, under the above-mentioned conditions, sure enough, I had a puddle of krausen around the carboy this morning. I wiped it up, nothing a few paper towels couldn't handle and now my hot water heater closet smells wonderful. However, I am inexperienced with this situation and I am wondering 1. could the overflow cause an infection (probably not right?), and 2. does the overflow cause a significant loss of yeast, enough that I now need to be concerned about fermentation finishing?
