    Yike, you deffo need to half fill with water. Just pop them under the tap (running slowly)

    I would suggest you have a good check of your wine to make sure there are no bugs in it.
    Happy Gardening,

    Well there is water in the airlock now and it makes that satisfying plopping noise occassionally (made me jump the first time!)

    Can't see any bugs so fingers crossed it is drinkable.
