Yeast Explosion: Woke up to my carboy cap on the floor

This is day 2 of fermenting. Yeast partied hard last night and I woke up this AM to a mini yeast explosion and my carboy cap and blowoff hose were on the floor.

I have no clue how long they were off the carboy for before I fixed the issue.

I guess my question is… What are the odds this batch is infected?


Low risk. Don’t sweat it.

You just made my day a lot better.

Thanks bud!

Yeah, no sweat. This is the time when it could least be a problem. I have opened fermented with out a lid before at this stage, with no problems. Sounds like you need a beer break.

Haha. Beer break sounds just about right!

Thanks for the reply!
