Some have misunderstood my posting. My basic question is:

Are air-locks just wasteful pressure-release mechanisms, or is there
a benefit to removing CO2 (say, to keep beer at a certain pressure
during fermentation)? Should I keep the plastic cap *on* my airlock
and forgo the aurally satisfying "glub, glub" to get much more carbonated
fermenting wort?
