No bubbles?!
 
Heyo :)

I'm a newbie here. I have a new batch 12 hours now and no bubbles! I'm panicking. I used a liquid yeast that I have never used in the past (well, the three times I've done this before... ). Says it could take 15 hours. Any words of wisdom?

When that 12 hours becomes 73 then you can panic. Until then, have as many beers as you can/want

Please read the stickies. This is covered 100 times a day.

In the time it takes me to go through all the stickies, my beer could be dying a horrible, unbubbly death! Just looking for some direction. Thanks.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk but this really comes up a bunch of times every week. Searching quickly for your answer might be faster than waiting for someone to respond to your new thread. The sticky regarding this would have told you everything is ok within 1 minute of reading it. The sticky is called fermentation can take 24 to 72 hours to show signs. Bingo!!!

Everyone on here is very helpful and is full of knowledge. You can ask anything and you will get good response but don't forget the search feature works just as well. I like to search first then ask if I can't find my answer.

To get back to your post, you are fine. Some times you wont even see bubbling in the airlock. The only way to know how your wort/beer is fermenting is to take gravity readings. If your reading goes down, it is fermenting. If it says the same, It isn't fermenting and then you need to look into why it isn't fermenting.

Just read, read, and read some more. I'm on this site 2 hours a day either online or using the app. Plus I read How To Brew and a few other great books. There is a lot of info out there that will help you.

Good job, fellas! You're doing a fantastic job filling in for Revvy while he is taking an Open-Heart Vacation.

Just do a good starter and it will take off in the future. I pitched my 1800 ml starter into my APA yesterday and had airlock bubbles in 1 hour. You can't beat a nice starter.

One brew at a time...

Mine might have bubbled twice in the 12 days it was in primary. As long as the hydrometer #'s are going down,you're good to go.
