It will be a problem if you try to ferment in a sealed container. Drill a hole and get a rubber stopper thing (forgot what theyíre called) to put your airlock in

No problem at all as long as you plan to package it soon after fermentation finishes.

What is the problem of leaving a small volume in a large container? Would there be a problem say if you were to put 10litres in a 20litre secondary vessel?

yes.. potential alcohol = 0 ,approx. sugar per liter = 60, specific grav = 20 ....

i dont know it seems strange.. i had 2 days o fermentation on the second and fourth day.. there are bubbles on the cap of my vessel and it is a bit boosted.. when i press it the airlock makes bubbles.. is it wrong to do it? is it bad to have bubbles on the top of it?
