So I put my THC in the fermentation bucket Saturday evening. There's about 3.25 gallons, and it's in a 6 gallon bucket. Just to play it safe, I used a blowoff tube. This morning and I checked, but still no bubbling. I popped off the lid to see if there was any activity, and there was a full head of krausen. I thought, hm, maybe the blowoff isn't allowing air out so I'll switch it to a normal three piece airlock. I did, and within seconds it was bubbling.
So my question is this, the day and half that it had the blowoff, but wasn't bubbling, do you think it was airtight or something? I did have it running into a bucket with sanitizer water. If it was airtight, do you think it affected the beer?
Thanks in advance for any answers or comments!
