Hi abbeyroadhelp: If you mean your airlock is still bubbling, it could be from natural degassing due to movement of the liquid, or from temperature fluctuations; I've found that 3 gallon glass carbouys are really bad when it comes to temperature variations & pressure differentials. I had one once that kept pushing out the solid stopper I tried to keep on it. I just swirled it around, made sure that both the stopper & the inside of the carbouy neck were dry, and then stoppered it; haven't had any problems with it since. Hope you find this info useful, GF.
