By noon time today, it will be 48 hours that my wine kit RJS cellar classic w/skins has no bubbling in the airlock. But I am using a rubbermaid brute 10 gallon bucket. The lid on these bucket's just snaps down in 2 places. There is no rubber seal. So im thinking that maybei t's easyier for the carbon dioxide to exit from the side's of the lid, then from the airlock??? When I look into the primary, it does look like foam is there. The room temp is 68.5 and the wine temp id near 70.00 from the floating thermometer. Maybe everything is ok? I have a brew belt also if you think that's what I need to do?
