comment Electric brewing inside
Unfortunately i do not have a fan on above my stove, so i guess that wont work. I read the article about the heat source on your site., and it peaked my interest. I don't have $1500 to spend on a control unit and I dont plan on doing more then 5 gal batches anytime soon, so i think i am going to go a cheaper diy route, like this one. However your site was awesome and very easy to read for a new brewer and not very electrical person, so i definitely will be buying you a beer. Thanks!

comment Forgot 1 piece to a 3 piece airlock, is this recoverable?
I opened the bucket up and there were a ton of bubbles and "foam" on the top of the liquid. I also measured the gravity again and it was a lot different compared to the OG, 1.012 compared to the OG 1.042. I guessing it wasnt bubbling because of the cap of the airlock. I guess i shouldn't have worried :) Thanks for your help.

I do have two of the pieces and the water. So it seems as if oxygen cant get in. Looking at it now, the cap has many holes in it to so the gasses can get out, but that also allows oxygen to get into the lock, above the water. The water should prevent it from getting into the fermenter. The only problem I can think of is that the cap allows it to fill up with gas and only allows little get out at a time, which prevents the oxygen from touching the water. As noted in my question, this is my first batch, so I'm just thinking out loud right now.
