I actually tried the weighting with my batch of second run. It was nearly dry yesterday > 1.000 but it had only been on the skins sine Sunday. I wanted more time on the skins so I decided to gamble and see what happens. I laid a plastic bag over the cap, put my half moon press blocks in two plastic bags and tied up good. For a couple hours I weighted the blocks with a 20 pound dumbbell in a plastic bag but it seemed to be too much. I left the press blocks on the cap and snapped on the Brute lid at 5 am, 10/14/2020. I'll be home sometime in the evening of Saturday 10/17/2020. I have a pet cam in the basement so now and then I pan over to the see the Brute. It doesn't look like any explosions and I'm sure my son will let me know if we have leaks. He is capable of punching down but I wanted to give the submerged cap a try. I'll update on Saturday.
