Default Fermentation & Krausen Development

Hey,
So I started my first batch of brewing! But unfortunately I'm not sure if it is fermenting correctly. I put my wort into the carboy and it looked pretty good when I was pouring it in, however after I pitch my yeast (a package that had been in the fridge) and capped it off with a blow of tube and left it over night, I wasn't really seeing any bubbling or action take place this morning when I woke up. It is a little darker at the bottom of the carboy then the top. There is a thin foam layer at the top, but I believe that is just left over from the transfer into the carboy. I thought I would be able to see more vigorous action occurring from the yeast introduction, but so far nothing. Any feed back would be great. Also it's a honey orange wheat if that will mean anything

thanks,

Was the yeast a Wyeast smack pack?

Relax.

You pitched a small amount of yeast into a huge sea of sugar water. Give them time to get acclimated and warm up a bit to their new environment.

Cool, thanks. Yeah it just took a day or two and a little agitation for it to get going.
