Default WLP001 No Krausen?

Hi everyone,

I brewed my Chocolate Stout on Monday and checked the fermenter this evening. The airlock is bubbling like crazy but no krausen has formed. Is this a cause for concern? Usually I have a krausen. The main difference in the linked recipe is that I switched from nottingham to WLP001 (which is a re pitch from a pumpkin ale) and I am fermented kind of on the cool side (64ish). Any thoughts?

I was searching for threads like this a few days ago because my APA was doing the same thing with WLP001. After a few days it started going nuts and I had to add a blow off tube. I was fermenting around 65. I'm sure you are fine.

Just take a gravity reading if you're concerned, im sure you'll find its dropped from the OG.

I took a reading today and I am down from 1.070 to 1.018 in 5 days. So sounds like I should RDWHHB
