Is this really an issue? Should I pursue a fix? I'm new to this so, it really bothers me when I don't see the airlock bubbling for longer than a day or two, knowing full well that there is in fact fermentation still happening inside the FV.
Anyway, as for fixes, I was thinking possibly a bead of silicone around the inside ring where the lid snaps to the bucket? I already tried taping around the lid... No worky. Any suggestions or thoughts?
