Wyeast 1272 almost went volcanic

Making a bear republic racer 5 ipa clone ( extract). I used the recommended wyeast 1272 American Ale 2 and made a 1000ml starter. Trying to ferment @ 68 deg, but is hit 72 deg.
Day 2 and I get a call at work from home ( " Hon, your beer is about to go all over the floor, its coming out of the bubbling thingy") So I have to walk my wife through sanatizing my blow off tube and installing it, lol.

Anyone else almost go volcanic with the 1272?

Not when fermenting it at 64F… :wink:

yea about any yeast will do that at 72 :slight_smile:

You got that right.
I brewed a blonde ale 1/1/12 with this yeast and my brew room is in the low 60s right now. I had less than two inches of foam. It went from 1.051 to 1.012.

Turning the heat down even more, it is currently at 70 deg. Room temp 67.

yeah, I made a starter with the 1272 and it went completely insane at about 66 in my CDA.

Fermenting @ 68 deg. now. Took off the blow off hose and put a 3 piece airlock back on.

Bottled this yesterday and found it dropped to 1.009.
