I have recently tried C.P's recipe for Cherries in the Snow. In addition
to noticing the white scum referred to by others, I had one of the cherries
block the hole in the top of the primary fermenter (a 5 gal. food grade
bucket) with a resulting explosion blowing the lid off the fermenter.
Renamed the brew Cherries on the wall. The lid fell face up (Murphy must
have been asleep) and we placed it back on.

When I transferred this brew to the secondary fermenter and placed the
fermentation lock on the top, the lock ran backwards (sucking air, instead
of bubbling air). Has anyone had a similar experience? I boiled some
more water with 2 cups of corn sugar, let cool, and added this to the
fermenter. Within 10 minutes the process was running normally. You
know what they say, "Don't worry..."
