If I open the Pickl-It, to remove foam or yeast, won't that ruin the batch?

Image Pickle Scum During the first week of fermentation, if you open the Pickl-It to scoop away foam – especially during fermenting of cucumbers – your pickles will not be ruined.

Once you refasten the Pickl-It lid, the carbon dioxide builds up again, fairly quickly, pushing the oxygen up-and-out the airlock.

Your ferment will stabilize back into anaerobic conditions, which are very important for happy, healthy lactic acid bacteria.
