So letting wine open to air is not a big deal during the primary fermentation? I know in the beer world that is a no no! Interesting... Time to add yeast to my SkeeterPee...

I actually don't cover most of my wines during primary, except with a clean towel to keep fruitflies out. You want to avoid contamination, of course, but as long as creepy crawlies can't get it, it'll be fine.

I just lay the cover on the pail (unclamped) and cover the airlock hole with a napkin.
