Make sure you have a stable FG. Then when it's clear or slightly misty,rack to the bottling bucket & rock-n-roll! It'll clear in the bottles in a couple of days.

It's ruined. Please wait for it to stop bubbling and bottle it up with some priming sugar and send it to Boo Boo in Nfld. lol.

You're fine, RDWAHAHB

Probably just knocked some CO2 out of solution from the movement. Probably best to check the gravity again in a few days to make sure it hasn't dropped any more.

Congrats! I bet it's great although I must admit your measuring cup reminds me of my recent urinalysis

It's normal , or at least common for airlock to be a little active after opening up the fermenter. It's just because the slight 'irritation' of the yeast and/or slight change in pressure. Should be normal and no problem, take another reading in a few days, and if it seems stable bottle and continue to wait til the glorious drinking day!
