This is going to freak you out a bit (maybe) but you really don't need the airlock. Aluminum foil over the top will be sanitary. Otherwise, yeah, use the lid.

And don't forget to shake the hell out of the wort, though with dry yeast it isn't quite as necessary.

Haha I know, heard that earlier. So how long do I periodically shake the carboy with dry yeast?

Sit down in front of TV and just shake it off and on for 30-45 min. You can come back every so often and shake it until fermentation starts if you like. Yeast need the o2 to help build their cell walls so they can divide.

Don't introduce air after fermentation starts, however.
