First batch and making an IPA using the Brewers Best kit. Moved to a glass carboy for secondary fermentation and noticed that my air lock had a crack in it. Had a very aggressive primary fermentation. I am pretty sure I am ok but wanted to ask. The air lock is holding water and it is holding water up to the fill line. So the air lock is functional. Just wanted to ask if the crack is a concern or not.

Ordering extra air locks but I won't be able to put a new one on for a few days. I think I am ok but hope someone can let me know. And I am inclined to leave the air lock on so I do not disturb the brew.

A sample before transfer tasted great. :) I am hooked on this new hobby!
