Default noob impatience

i was so excited to get into this hobby. put my first brew in january 1st. a cherry wheat. i know the hydrometer is the tell-tell sign of fermentation but i couldn't help to be worried and overly concerned since i had no activity whatsoever in the airlock. however, i woke up this morning, 8 days after putting my batch in the primary and i had bubbles. i go to the grocery store and take my son to the park and come back home to beer coming up into the airlock. i was so happy, i thought i was gonna cry. all that noob worrying for nothing.

hmmm

If beer is coming up into the airlock, you should try to see if you can affix a blowoff tube going into a cup of sanitizer solution. If the airlock gets clogged, you'll end up with beer all over your ceiling and walls.

If you have the 3 peice airlock, Take the cap and tophat out. Put a piece of tubing over the stem coming up and place the other end of the tubing into sanitizer solution or vodka.

isnt anyone concerned that he is just now getting blowoff on day 8 or am I misreading that? Being a noob myself . I would be worried why it took so long.

I am a noob too but I assume it had something to do with a temperature change.... The yeast just getting active?

well i wonder if some of the veterans could comment about this, is this normal to have blow off on day 8 of fermentation, I'm just wondering since there's been a few times where I almost didnt use the hydrometer.
