    Airlock not bubbling

    Hey guys, I brewed my first beer with a Ballihoo fermenting bucket and barrel, about a month ago. I attached an air lock, but it did not bubble once during the month and a half it was brewing (apart from when I transported it in the car!). Rather surprisingly, the beer came out OK in the end...

    Best type of airlock/blow off for Make your own red wine kit

Anyone any ideas what, if anything might...

    FV Air Lock "boil over" trap

    I saw someone had a "boil over" of their air-lock that made a mess of their worktop and, although that hasn't happened to me I had an idea that may prevent it happening. The idea is to use the air-lock within another container - in this case a cut down plastic milk bottle so that will trap any...
