If it really does turn out to be undrinkable, remember the joys of cooking with beer. You might also experiment with making malt vinegar.

What you have described is not all that unusual. Since the foam is going out, not in, the risk of contamination is basically nil. You need to watch out that your airlock doesn't clog - there are...

I used to do primary fermentation in a 6 gallon bucket with no lid and a sheet of plastic covering most of the top. I'm not proud of it; that was how I was taught. The beer was fine except for one...

I'm a fan of the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Food Scale with Pull-Out Display. It measures in ounces (down to 1/8 ounce) and grams.

You will get no bitterness out of dry hopping; you will get quite a bit of aroma and flavor. It is less efficient that boiling the hops, but you don't lose the aroma molecules. You will get flavors...

BTW - a great many homebrewers use tap water for top-off without boiling it. The advisability depends on the water in your area.

You could always let the stopper just sit on top loosely without jamming it in until it dries sufficiently, unless you're planning to move it somewhere.

You could also wire it in place like they...

If the lid fits tightly, then you will have a big problem. The purpose of the airlock is to release pressure while not letting in outside air. Without some form of pressure release, you may some...

Stainless steel is more durable and could double as a boil kettle. A cooler will definitely hold a temperature better unless you have some really impressive insulation on the steel.
