    should i take a peek?

    im starting to freak out as its now gone 48 hours and it only has a slight bit of bubbles/foam on top that isnt anything dramatic. it smells of flat beer and im pretty sure it is airtight. cos when i push lid down air rushes into the airlock. i think it mite be a bit cold as i got in the garage...

    ferment bin to keg?

    i have a fermenting bin 25 litres that had a twist on cap. i wanted to know if there is anyway i could turn it into a keg by just maybe drilling a hole near the bottom and attaching a tap so that i could dispense beer straight from it. is this possible?

    boil or not?

    think about yeh and ull figure out that the only reason drink beer is because it has alcohol in it. would you bother making/drinking it if it didnt have any alcohol in it?
