My last one (1056) 2000ml did the same thing, I just cold crashed it, decanted and pitched. She was going 4 hours later, you'll be fine..

Are you sure you had a good seal around the airlock and your bottle? Perhaps fermentation completed and you didn't notice it because of a poor seal. If you aren't going to brew in the next couple of days, crank up another starter.

Check the gravity to see if the yeast have done their job and u just missed it.

If there is a nice size cake at the bottom, you missed it and it's done already, it happens.

You should be able to see a slight krausen ring just above the liquid level for proof.
