This old thread just saved me. Making a an apple ale, and I've never had a beer coming out of a
bucket's airlock. Used the siphon hose as blow off tube and am all set now. Thank you!

using it, b...

Well, I went ahead and did the deed. I used the Carlson's and didn't rinse with water. (Man, I

I just got up the guts to open the bucket (which I hope didn't disturb it too much). The
krausen is still on top, so I take it that -- given the krausen hasn't dropped -- it's not done
fermenting - ri...

okay. So I have a similar question. I'm doing an ale as well. Primary is in a 5 gallon bucket
with airtight top and airlock. It's been 8 days, and now bubbles are only coming at a rate of
