Default haggared airlock

My plastic airlock is loose in the rubber stopper. I can't see any activity but know that things are happening in the fermentor. Is there anything I can do to fix this like caulking or something, or does this not matter so much?


Thanks!
Matt

It doesn't matter, just get a new rubber thing when you get around to it...

Doesn't matter. You can put some foil or plastic wrap over the hole, if you are concerned about critters getting in.

Just get a new airlock and bung when you stop at the LHBS, or place your next order online. They're dirt cheap! Other than that you are good to go; your beer should be fine.
