For months, I have been using the Speidel Plastic fermenter with the big airlock. On my last two batches that I've fermented in the Speidel, fermentation has happened, but the airlock never bubbled. Both beers came out really good and I hit my targeted final gravity.
You've checked and you have no leaks, so is no bubbles in the airlock really a sign of a lack of fermentation? The first thing to bear in mind is that it can take at least 15 hours of your Earth time before the CO2 bubbles start gurgling through the airlock.
The bubbling in the airlock is just one sign of fermentation. It’s not the only sign. Just because there’s no bubbling, doesn’t mean that the yeast aren’t turning your wort into beer. The cause could be that your bottling bucked might not be completely sealed, so the gasses are escaping in other places then through your airlock.
If you’ve pitched your yeast and it’s been over 24 hours, but don’t see any airlock activity, you may be thinking that fermentation isn't happening. However there could be a different problem. No Seal / Bad Seal: This typically happens in buckets where the lid isn’t secured tightly on the bucket. Gas will take the path of least resistance out of your vessel.
What is most likely causing the air-lock to bubble backwards is a temperature change of the wine. As a wine cools down it contracts or shrinks – much more so than the glass or plastic of the fermentation vessel. Contracting wine sitting in glass jugs or even a plastic fermenter would cause a vacuum to occur in the head-space.
When brewing using a fermenting vessel with an airlock fitted it may not always bubble, there are several reasons why an airlock might not bubble and usually this is nothing to worry about. The airlock is there to allow any CO2 created by the fermentation process to escape if needed, many people do brew without an airlock and instead just fit the ...
