Fellow Homebrewers,

Ran into a problem this morning with the Stout I boiled last night. The

recipe that I had, called for about a six U.S. gallon mixture. I've only got a

7 1/2 gallon fermentor. Right now, I've got one big mess. The foam has come up
through the bubbler on to the top of the fermentor. I've also cleaned it up
several times and reinserted the bubbler valve. It still foams up! The only
thing I could think of was to pull the bubbler off and cover the hole with a
cheese cloth. Are there any other suggestions? Help!
