The Labrea Tar Pits Stout

Here's a couple of pictures from this weekends brewing. The wort looked so good in the pot it was hard not to just scopp some out for a taste! This was the first time I've used a blow-off tube instead of a regular air-lock. I've read in forums and other homebrewing sites that high gravity beers tend to have really intense krausens anda normal airlock usually gets clogged with foam overflow and can bow right out of the top, leaving a nasty mess to clean up! Well, here's picture evidence, wow, I'm glad I followed the advice!!! Normally the Krausen layer gets about 2 inches high, but never hit the airlock itself... Can't wait to see how this bad boy turns out.
