Hey there, I've decided I wanted to start up this hobby. I've got a 30L plastic bucket, 5 gallon carboy, a hydrometer, an airlock and some sanitizer. I think I should be good to go with my first batch. Anyways my question is I went to a home brew store by my place and the guy there said to first ferment my beer in the bucket with the top on and no means of the CO2. I asked about drilling a hole in the top and putting a bung and airlock on it and he said no, just leave the top. Now I know Im new and may not know a lot yet, but that doesnt seem right to me as I'm sure after 3-4 days in that the top will come bursting off. Just looking for what you guys thought as I'm sure youre more knowledgable about this then I am. Thanks in advance for any help.
