So, I brewed my first batch of beer ever yesterday (American Light by Brewers Best). I followed the directions and got to where I needed to chill the wort. I had it in an ice bath in the sink, which I think created problems with my reading the lcd thermometer affixed to the side of my bucket.
Anyway, I fear I may have added the yeast when the wort was still in the 80 degree range.
The bucket began bubbling last night and through today, so I thought everything was alright. But, it has since seemed to stop, only about 24 hours into the process.
I read some threads and just cut off the cross on the bottom of the airlock thinking it might have plugged.
When I looked in the airlock hold I saw bubbles on the surface of the wort.
I'm worried though, any thoughts?
