Thanks for the input. I'm sure it's going to be fine just a little worried because this is my first brew with this new kit I got. I've always used the "brewers best" bucket and three piece air lock.Upthewazzu said:FWIW, on my first brew the airlock never bubbled. It looked like your picture for a couple of days and then equalized on day 3. I thought my beer never fermented when in fact it did. There was obviously just a leak around the edge of the lid that let CO2 escape. Everything turned out fine.
If I had to guess, you're using the bucket and 2-piece airlock from Midwest Supplies...am I right?Thanks for the input. I'm sure it's going to be fine just a little worried because this is my first brew with this new kit I got. I've always used the "brewers best" bucket and three piece air lock.
What in the world are you talking about? A massive amount of very tasty brew is fermented every day in plastic buckets.When i first brewed my failure cooper mix I used a bucket and airlock. Air lock looked exactly the same as that and it definitely turned into beer, just nasty tasting. The buckets don't do it justice. This second time around, my demijohn with a very calm fermentation is bubbling... plastic buckets and weak rubber o-rings don't do it justice.
+1. Now leave that lid alone for at least 2 weeks.and leave that lid on there...rdwhahb!
