Hell, my grommet's gone wort diving three times. Never had a problem. Some day I will learn to put the airlock on before I cover the pail.

Somehow I've been able to fish it out of the trub successfully without much effort each time.

Is it wrong that the first thing to pop in my mind when I read the thread title was "send in a Rubber Eskimo (or Inuit) with a rubber club to go get the little bastard"?

Did the same thing on my first batch.

I didn't have a replacement, so just covered the hole with aluminum foil and it's been a GREAT beer

To be honest maybe too good as I have a hard time limiting myself to 1 beer a day... I'm almost out and my next is at least 2 weeks away from being ready.

Cover and your beer will be just fine.

Cheers

I guess that's my problem. I've never done this and so I'm not a true homebrewer yet. Frankly, I can't see how anyone can do this. I mean, you can see when you are about to pass that puppy through the hole, right? So you just stop before you get there. It's like what you tell your girlfriend, except you actually do it.

Guilty. You'll find it in the yeast cake when you're cleaning up.
