i do. i just leave it be and every once in a while pull the pressure release valve. also, occasionally i'll take a peak into the corny to see what's going on and whether a pellicle is present. since only very, very little O2 is necessary i'm probably adding too much O2 by opening it, but so be it.
Check out my small batch Appalachian Candi Syrups. Dark, Grapefruit, and Pineapple.
Hopefully coming to a brew near you!
