    Bubbles from auto siphon

    I had the same problem. I just pushed more tubing onto the can and they stopped. How far on the can does your tubing go? Try pushing it on further.

    Flies in the Airlock?!!!!!

    Thanks for the replies. I had either vodka or gin in the airlock. Guess I kind of freaked when I saw the flies, but sounds like I should be fine. Thanks again.
