Thanks guys.....I'm new to this and easily freaked out.....plus my son is excited about it to boot. I am seeing some small bubbles in the wort so some activity is taking place but not enough yet to move my air lock. I suspect by morning it will be a different story. I am using a 3 gal glass carboy, improvement on my mead (which is in a 2 gal plastic bucket), so we can watch the show!!! I have an orange silicone cap that has two openings, one capped, and a 3 piece air lock filled with vodka....all are tight. I apologize I am totally new to this and have wanted to brew for years.....discovered a HBS in our town so I have easy access. Any suggestions on future brews let me know for sure!!!
