    Simple, for a 5 gallon batch, use a 10 gallon bucket.  Its going to foam a little, tells you that you got good yeast and every thing is right... Jim   From:

      I made a new mash last night. Kept the lid off and laud a towel over the top of the bucket. I got a phone call that my mash started to foam and foamed over the edge of the bucket. Is this normal?? How do u guys keep it in??

      to paraphrase: You re gonna need a bigger bucket I use same guideline as boiler charge, only use 3/4 of capacity, makes life much simplier.
