Default Fermentation??

Brewed my first batch last night. I woke up this morning with the airlock bubbling nicely. I know that isn't the way to determine fermentation, but later this afternoon the airlock isn't showing anything. Just curious if something might be wrong.

Nothing shoud be wrong - depending on a bunch of factors, your air lock just decided it didn't want to bubble any more.

Give it about a week at least; then take a gravity reading to see where you are at.

the best thing you can do is RDWHAHB!

p.s. you pretty much answered your own question

its highly unlikely but fermentation might be over. if it doesn't pick up again within the next day or so i would start thinking its just stuck. if so let us know and we will help.

Wait 2-3 weeks and check the Gravity.

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll just put a lock on the door so I stop checking on it.
