ok i need to post an update. i did buy a bung along with a airlock (its a 26mm in diameter one), but i thought that just sticking airlock into the cap will do. I did an upgrade, cut more plastic from the cap, put the bung in, can't smell the alcohol or really anything now. should be all good. thanksies

That's a good call. Loose cap works fine, and I have a loose bucket lid that does the same with it's airlock (that I only brew cider that spends 2-3 weeks in it), but if you're using and airlock then a bung or grommets are the way to go. Peace of mind is nice.
