The airlock moves when you do that because you're putting pressure on the gasses inside the fermenter's head space. He was asking if you put the yeast in (pitching).

Well,that certainly answers that question! Since you have that ring around the collar,the krausen seems to have already fallen back into the brew. No worries,m8,it's just yeast foam.

Good I told you to do this because if the lid wasn't down correctly the airlock won't move which could have explained why the you weren't seeing any activity in the airlock but it seems it has been fermenting by the picture you sent.

I have bottled mine up now, looks good but a bit of sediment at the bottom of the bottles.

My fermentation bin hasn't got an airlock, it is essentially a bucket with a lid! Am I using the wrong thing?!

Maybe they gave you the wrong lid? You could drill a 3/8" hole in it to install an airlock grommet & airlock.
