Hey guys, I just got one of the new airlocks pictured below. It saves me some space rather than using just a big tube for a blowoff (I live in an apt.) However, I haven't seen any bubbles coming up into the sanitizer it's dipped into. I talked to the owner of my LHBS, and she said that it could be that the CO2 is just dissolving into the sanitizer rather than bubbling in. That made my BS detectors go off though.
It's obviously fermenting because I replaced the pictured airlock with a standard airlock and bubbles appeared instantly. I couldn't find any leaks in the system either, but if the CO2 isn't going through the tube and bubbling into the sanitizer solution, and isn't leaking, the airlock should pop off the fermentor.... Any ideas out there on what's happening.
As always, I appreciate the help.
