Okay, so I made a brew with grape juice, put a condom over it for the airlock (it is lubricated D, and poked a good bit, maybe 6-7 holes in the top. Now a couple of the holes are sort of big, a little bit larger than a pen poke, but no larger than a tiny crumb. Is that too much for the oxygen to get in and contaminate it? Please help me.
So I put it on a couple days ago, and the condom has NOT inflated yet. Should I give it time to work? The process is working, for I see and hear the Co2 bubble sizzling.
If this does not work, can I simply screw th cap back on the bottle, and unscrew it a turn to let the pressure out, would that work?
Please help me, I would really like my brew to be successful.
Answers are much appriciated.
