Well, wait another 66 hours before worrying!
And I use the airlock cap. Unless I've lost it. So, don't sweat it too much either way. It does keep the fruitflies out if you have that kind of issue in the summer/fall. But if the lid is inexplicably missing, that's ok too. I have 1,000,000 airlocks. And three lids. I think the kids hide them to make me crazy (er).
