I drilled a lid and it is working great thus far.
As far as everyone has ever told me, if there's yeast that is alive, which there is (because you've dropped gravity already), it will continue to be alive until it runs out of sugar. Unless you kill it some other way (heat, chemicals, etc). Just might take longer
