Liquid Nails is respected brand name for a variety of adhesives (and a boatload of related substances/products) with a variety of diff compounds, most of which contain some amount of various rubber materials. Some are water-clean-up; some are solvent (paint thinner) clean-up. It's original use was for joining pieces of wood without nails. It's especially useful for putting up wall paneling, making air-tight seams in loudspeaker cabinets, and joining particle board (which hates screws). There's a version sets quickly and which is wonderful for putting ceiling molding without nailing!
The full product list is here:
Take your pick to suit your purpose ;-)
The solvent types have rather nasty fumes until fully
cured; the water-clean-up types are much less nasty.
Liquid Nails comes in small metal tubes like airplane glue, in caulk-gun sized tubes and even larger. It's pretty inexpensive.
The solvent types adhere best and adhere to almost anything.
The brand name is now being used to market a line or more ordinary glues (like so-called household cement). The "Tub Surrounds & Shower Walls Adhesive (LN-915)" is a likely candidate for the yeast cap.
Liquid Nails is to wood joinery what duct tape is to, well, to just about everything (Catch old reruns of the "Red Green" show for lots of tips -- he always had a segment on duct tape, which he claims is the first material of choice for any job ;-) )

I have used Liquid nails on the outside of the cap only
and it has held
wonderfully. I have even used it on an active generator,
where the silicone
was leaking under pressure -- I peeled off the silicone
appplied Liquid Nails to the junction. The seal held then
and has held ever
since. Liquid Nails is a clear caulk (?) found at Walmart
or Home Depot, or
if you are lucky, out in your garage.
