You go out and get you an airlock, right now, boil a batch, put the airlockon it abd when the bubbles start you do 2 hail barleys and 3 our fermenters and maybe, just maybe you can save your immortal soul.

I use three difffernent buckets, all have different lid designs- one of the familiar "Ale Pail," three "US Plastics," and some smaller 3.5 gal. "Ropak" brand. Some are easier than others, the "Ale Pail" being hardest to remove. But from my perspective, it's just not that big a deal. Start in one spot, work your way around, and when you've gotten enough of the lid up, it comes off.

My preference? The "US Plastics" 7 gal. bucket. It's got a taller profile than most buckets, so more headspace. Cheaper to buy than the "Ale Pail," and not only does the lid incorporate an "O" ring seal that actually DOES seal, but the lip of the lid has more to grab onto, so it's easier to remove.

Open fermentation would not work worth a darn for me. By the time it was done fermenting, the cats would have drunk it all.
