QUESTION

I mixed my first batch about 7 hours ago. I was told to put the mix and sugar into this bucket then in a week transfer it into the secondary fermenter.

I just walked by and see the lid on the bucket is very bulged out and I'm concerned it'll blow!

ANSWER

it might help to know what you are brewing.

I can't see an airlock on the bucket so depending on what you are brewing you may have to add an airlock so the CO2 can escape the barrel. This would stop it blowing up!!!

Again without knowing what you are brewing it is hard to give any advice.

If you want to know more about airlocks take a look at this video. CraigTube
