Ok, thanks. The fermenter is in my garage right now so I'm hoping the temp drops a little more. I only opened it a little and only once.

You may not get any bubbling threw the airlock if you have a leaky seal on the bucket ....

Leaky seal?!?!?!? OH NOOOOOO!!
LOL. It's a old bucket so maybe the lid doesn't seal great. It went on hard. Made a nice snap when I put it on. I was actually thinking I had a leaky lid but it's too late now to do anything. Hopefully in a few days I'll be able to rack into secondary and it will be ok.

A lot of bucket lids don't seal well. I even leave mine loose (with a weight on top) during active fermentation to prevent blow-outs.

Ok cool. So it's no big deal if the lid is leaking. Good to know. Thanks.

Instead of having that debate, here's a link to a thread with a discussion about whether to secondary, along with lots of other good info:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/vs-p...alysis-109318/
Then the OP can make up his own mind.

I started placing my carboys on the concrete floor in the garage... noticed a good 5 degree temp change from the ambient temp which is nice.
