Hey all, so this is my first Brew after taking a bit of a long break. When I was brewing in the past I had an FV without a hole for an airlock so I used to leave the lid on loosely so air could escape.

I pitched this Brew Friday night and maybe it’s because I’ve got an airlock on so notice it more but it just seems quite lively lol

All you can hear every couple of seconds is it bubbling which is making me chuckle. This is all normal though right? Only added a Kilo of Sugar and Yeast Nutrient. I just want to make sure I have some decent beer for Christmas
Right so I pitched it last Friday night…..it’s died down quite a bit, but it’s still occasionally bubbling. Did have a peek earlier and the Krausen’s gone, that sounds about right yeah?
It'd be a good idea to get yourself a hydrometer for a few quid, then you can check the gravity at start and finish and know whether it's done.
