And check your gravity. If its changing its all good...

And to second Unibrows comment, I ferment in buckets and haven't had a good bubbling airlock in a year. But gravity keeps changing and beer keeps a-making...

I can't check gravity, the hydrometer I had didn't work,I should have checked it earlier.

Looked under my bucket lid and seen krausen,smells good too. Other than taking gravity samples, is it safe to say as long as there's krausen everything is ok? Should I aerate it (with O2 from a bottle tubing and diffuser stone-all sanitized)to be safe?

OK,bought a hydrometer and got a reading of 1.032 on Tue. evening (brewed Sun. afternoon), too bad I couldn't read the OG from the start.

ok,mine is in the corny keg getting carbonated. Can anyone tell me what my alcohol content is? I first brewed 2 sundays ago but didnt have a hydrometer till tuesday. My "og" on tuesday was 1.035 @63 degrees and my fg was 1.012 @72 degrees. I know this isn't actual alcohol but rather a minimum. Thanks.

If you followed the original recipe your abv should be close to 5%

The reading you took on Tuesday wasn't an accurate OG number since it had been fermenting a bit.

Thanks,poured a glass(still needs to be carbonated more) and found still cloudy which i think time will clear up a bit,good smelling beer. I followed the recipe exactly but replaced 1 lemon zest for 1 orange. So far it tastes a little like a Hoegaarden/Bluemoon mix. Thank you for sharing.
