ok yeah, my airlock is full of foam.....I have a piece of tubing that fits over the center tube of a 3 piece airlock where I can let the foam drain out. i assume this is the best thing to do?

take some tubing that you're not going to want to use again (or will clean like a madman) and run it from the center of the airlock, down into a vessel of water, keeping it submerged.

That's what I'm wondering. With mine, other than airlock bubbling you couldn't even tell it was fermenting by looking at it since there were no bubbles or foam or anything. Are those getting foam using different types of yeast?

I used the yeast in the OP.. Now I did make a smaller batch and used the whole pack. I asked in the thread if I should just use some or all... It was all. Could that be it?

Did you use the Montrachet yeast?

BTW, how long do the ryno farts last? SWMBO's getting annoyed...

So, I've never homebrewed in my life before, and it turns out that the local wholefood shop, which doubles as the closest thing that there is to a local homebrew shop, only has Kitzinger Reinhefe trocke/all-purpose yeast ("to fement jusice of grapes and fruits").

Oh, and I thought dextrose was fructose put a kilo in with around 19 litres of 100% apple juice (from concentrate) from the local Lidl.

Anyway, I stuck it in the shed around lunchtime and a couple of hours later it is already starting to gently bubble. Now I just have to wait a few weeks and see how it all gets on.
