    Why re-invent the wheel? There are a number of recipes here that should give you the info you
    need. Below is one that I use. Put the fruit in your secondary. Make your own funnel by cutting
    off the to...

    For a primary fermenter, I use a plastic pale. One time when my air lock wasn't bubbling, I
    found that air was escaping from around the gasket in the grommet hole in the lid, rather than
