Typical top fermentation in a carboy

An alcoholic fermentation during which the yeast cells are carried to the top of the fermenting liquid. It proceeds with some violence and requires a temperature of 14-30°C. (58-86°F.). It is used in the production of ale, porter, etc., of wines high in alcohol, and in mashes intended for distilling.
