it does need to be on airtight. Any air getting into the fermentor is a risk of airborne bacteria and wild yeasts.

I say if it works now, don't try to fix it. If you been brewing good beer the way you do, then stick with it. I usually always steep for 30-40 min. I add the grains to cold water and will slowly...

some contaminations are odorless, tasteless, and have no real effect on the brew. Hopefully you can bottle it up and it will still be awesome! Good luck.

So it has a bit of a sour taste, which isn't necessarily bad in a cranberry beer. It is still sweet tho, so i'm guessing the high temps for 5 days killed the yeast. It's in the secondary now. Think...

Try repitching a little dry ale yeast on it. I had a stuck ferm on a Brown Ale and after 4 weeks the SG was .021. I repitched a small pack of dry ale yeast on it and 4 days later it was perfect!
