I brewed a Sierra Nevada PA clone kit from Brewers Best. The yeast was Muntons dry. I re-hydrated the yeast and pitched at room temp of 68F to wort that was the same temp. Used the vigorous shaking of the bucket for aeration and added Wyeast Nutrient. Bubbling started in 4 hours and continued for 24 hours then slowing down to 2-3 min. It's now been about 41 hours and no bubbling when I got up this morning. THe ambient temp is about 67 and the wort temp is still at 70 according to the strip temp indicator. I'll be patient and wait a week before checking the gravity, but would like to know what people think is happening. Is the bulk of fermentation finished? Should I take a gravity sooner? Nothing has changed as far as temp or barometric pressure - i.e no weather changes. It is cold here in Florida, but my house conditions have not changed since pitching.
