I read that on Jack keller's site, but, being a beer-guy, I didn't really believe it. Thanks for all the help!

I put the lids on my wine fermenters, just dont lock them down, and I do put the airlock in the airlock hole.
Also, alot of times, starters are not needed with wine yeast, nor is rehydrating. I have made a few kits, and they have all benn good fermenters just from sprinkling the yeast on top and not stirring at all. Just sprinkle and done. Have never had a problem.
