    without letting...

    I bought a new airlock today poured some starsan in it and popped the middle piece on. It's
    been on dry for about 3 days. It's not bubbling should I be worried?

    Should I put some starsan in it? I can't get a new airlock until tomorrow. I finished brewing
    sat night.

    rinsed mi...
