    If you're set on replacing it, I would check out Bargain Fittings for a stainless steel
    weldless setup (not sure about international shipping). You can make the same thing out of
    brass and copper from...

    Even if it's plastic it shouldn't leak, but what faucet are we talking about here?

    and that answers that...zip ties around the cap did the trick and it's happily bubbling away
    now. Thanks for all the input!

    I'm headed to the carboy to try this right now

    Thanks paraordnance, that's good to know, and answers my question perfectly. The caps are so

    You are overreacting big time. Airlock means very little. You need to give it more time as

    days and it shows...

    Thanks for the tips guys, I'll be taking a gravity reading today, and looking into the cap
    seals. I'm not terribly concerned, but it sure would be nice to locate the leak.

    1/2" works great for my setup, but if you have 1" I don't really see why not. A cheap way to
    drill holes is to use a hole saw, they get a lot of grief around here for not being super
    accurate holes, b...

    I haven't seen a single bubble...I have several varieties of yeast cultures on slants which I
    propagate into a large enough volume to pitch for my brews. This particular time I used London
    Ale WLP013 ...

    Truth be told, I've never tasted a bad (funky) starter. I always assumed it tastes somewhat
    like contaminated beer.
