I did the same. I'm sure nearly everyone on here did. After awhile you'll find areas where there is room for you to not be 100% by the book. Then it gets double fun because you start developing your own wacky style.

Agreed! I wasn't trying to encourage worrying, just thinking aloud

I set my kombucha on the counter for 30 minutes and there's 10 fruit flies trying to crawl through the cheesecloth... Along with 3 or 4 floating dead ones in every airlock on every brew I do this time of year.

No infections yet though

The best lesson and the hardest lesson to learn in homebrewing is LEAVE it ALONE. Patience. Time solves almost all problems along with not messing with it.
