I purchased a secondary fermenter yesterday. I havn't got a airlock for it yet. Until I get one, can I simply just poke a hole in the lid and then make the hole bigger to accommodate the airlock when I get it?

Just use glad wrap instead of lid and airlock

Thanks for that doon. Just go around the glad wrap with some sticky tape to make sure it doesn't loosen?

I use glad wrap, but if you want an airlock, don't you already have one from the primary?

Nope. Use the rubber seal from under the lid as a giant elastic band to hold it down with.

Yeah just use o ring as said. Once you wrap you'll never go back!

For secondary I'd not even bother using cling-wrap (or putting an airlock or hole in the lid), I'd just put the lid on loosely, because it's not likely there is going to be much CO2 degassing anyway.
