I have read about some of the belgian yeasts fermenting better after their first fermentation. This photo shows some yeast which was split between starters and stepped up, with the majority used, then replenished withe fresh wort. my bucket is filled to 4 gallons (4-5inches of head space) and the lid nearly blew off.
here's a boring 1 min video of the kreusen peeking out of the airlock.

the kitty likes the dried sweet (yet bitter) wort on the sides of the fermenter.
LOOK AT THAT YEAST!
Not to mention it's throwing sulphur big time
so we had some people over and I was asked to move all my beer crap. I moved my 7-8 gallons of belgian style ale to the basement. Since it was chugging along really well. that carboy filled up to the top with kreusen, but it was way too cool in basement, in the morning it was about 60 degrees, bummer- the 3787 likes it 65+ so I brought it all upstairs and used a heating pad to bring them back to life. The carboy has filled up with foam once again. and they are bubbling again so hopefully i didn't piss them off too much.
