I've only used the yeast that comes with the kit, what kind would you recommend using? My primary doesn't have an airlock, it only has a lid. Would it be okay to let it sit in that for a few weeks? The instructions say 3-5 days.
I believe the Coopers can is an extract kit, which I've never used before. The Brew House kits come with everything I need.
