Default Far too quick?

I started my first 25 liter batch on Sunday, had a lot of angry sounding bubbles for a few days and now nothing. Not a single bubble today :/ Should I be concerned?

We need to know a few things but that sounds perfectly normal to me. Most ale yeasts go crazy for the first 2-4 days and then slow down to just a few bubbles for the next week or so.

What kind of yeast?

What was the OG (Original Gravity) measurement?

What temperature was your beer at for the first few days?

Sorry it's a cider batch I'm having the problem with. OG was around the 1.06 mark and I used champainge yeast. Usually I would expect it to be steadier. As for temp, around 7ºC or so..
