The picture shows the primary fermentation of Ivan the Great. It's a huge beer (SG 1.100) and was pitched onto the yeast cake from a previous batch. It went crazy and foamed out all over the fermentation chamber and onto the floor. I wound up scooping foam off the top every half hour for the first day of fermentation. Yummy!
