Yes, it was a brand new NB bucket. No rubber seal like I had on my pervious bucket that I broke the lid. First batch in this bucket rocked out bubbles immidiatly, but this batch is just plain blahhhhh on the bubbles. I agree that it probably is just leaking.
Will check gravity tonight to see if I'm dropping from 1.056. I'll report back. Going to taste too. Mmmmm
