Put airlock in lid, then put lid on bucket, then fill airlock with some liquor, vodka, whatever you have on hand.

I almost did this with my very first batch but luckily that stupid grommet stuck to the airlock so I just took the lid off and then I followed the steps above.

I had the same situation with my first brew. I stuck my hand in the brew and fished it out in like 3 seconds. Let's hope nothing bad happens. It doesn't seem too bad thus far.
