I don't want to bore anyone with a long read so I'll get right to the point. Is the air lock supposed to fit tightly into the hole in the fermentor lid? Mine fits really loose and am curious if it's going to be a problem.

Do you not have a black rubber grommet sealing it and making for a tight fit?

I'm not sure. I'll go look in the bag-o-parts right now. Thanks for the quick reply.

Sure enough, rubber grommet sitting in the bag waiting for me. Thanks, Revvy!
