This may sound like a rediculous question - but is it ok to pull the little red cap off top of the airlock to smell what the beer smells like - (or maybe smell what the gas smells like) I did it today cause it was killing me with no smell ni the secondary glass carboy - its air tight so the only place u can sneek a lil smell is the gas coming from the airlock

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It's ruined! Bottle it all up and send it to me for disposal.



No, seriously, it's fine.

Just pull the air lock and take a whiff, you'll be fine and if you have any doubts send me & bikenbrew a sample and we will let you know how it turned out.

Cheers
