Ooh foreign girls brewing beer! Is this what the dancing banana icon is for? I've been confused about this one.

1stly, the sarcasm was was stupid.

Secondly, yeah it's normal. If you've got a good wort (sterile and full of sugars) and a good yeast (strong, happy, randy Yeasties) fermentation can be completed in one day.

A hydromiter reading that is consistent over two or three days is the only way to be sure that fermentation is complete. DO NOT RELY ON BUBBLES IN THE AIRLOCK.

It may have fermented quick but I would still leave it in the primary for 10 days. If you are in a real hurry then you could bottle it but I wouldn't make it a habit of doing that soon.

"May the Yeast be With You" I like that quote.

+1 for leaving it in primary for at least 10 days! The same thing happened with my first batch but it turned out there was just a leak in my primary. I'm a couple weeks into fermentation now and it tastes like an IPA (as it should)! So don't worry, nothing is wrong. Just try to be patient and don't worry about what the airlock is doing!
