When I first started I bought 2 primaries with the grommets, both
leaked and for 3 days I thought I had a problem and that my kits were
not fermenting(no action at airlock). I finally open them up and
discovered that I did have a problem, the grommets! I redrilled the
lids for # 8 rubber bungs and whaalaa. lots of bubbling.
Wade, great idea.... Joan, I know this is going to cause some discussion, but I just cover my primary with a clean dish towl. Yeast need to breath at first.. I got the idea from Jack Keller's web page...
Kutya, a lot of people do that but I can not because I have a cat that
goes in my basement and likes to sleep on everything. If I do that I
will be having a cat fermenting. Anybody ever try feline wine?
