    I made a Belgian yesterday, about as high of a gravity of anything I make. I think I scored a 77 on the grav-o-meter. This morning when I woke up, I had 1 1/2 to 2" of Krausen in my little 6 gallon carboy. I probably have 5 1/2 gallons in there, so I moved the carboy to the floor and put a blowoff tube on it. The krausen fell when I did that, totally disappeared. It was burping. Tonight when I got home, it was burping away quite happily. There is no krausen. I'm sure the beer is fine. I've never seen this before. Has anyone here ever seen that?

    Yep. Normally when I do Belgians. I'm sure there's a reason why, I just don't know it.
