I've had beers ferment out in 24 hours before, especially if it's warm. Even if it's done with the majority of the fermentation, though, the yeast are still busy finishing up and then they start digesting their own waste products. Keep it at the optimum fermentation range for at least another 5 days and then you can check the SG and see if it's done.

Pretty common. Don't worry.

Well, I could wait for Revvy, but I'll go ahead and just put out the reminder that airlock activity is not an indicator of fermentation.
