In the December 2013 issue you described a low-cost method for wort aeration consisting of a barbed tee set up in-line on the way to the fermenter. I recently tried this method and ended up with a wort geyser! I thought that it may have happened because I had created too much back pressure by leaving the standoff at the end of the racking cane.
