I have a stout in a fermenter for 72 hours now, huge krauzen has formed on top of it, but no gas is coming through the airlock....

the krauzen is one of the biggest I've ever had on beer.

hm, don't get it....

Sounds to me like your fermenter is not sealed air tight.

Make sure the loose piece in the airlock is floating.... if it is not, it will not bubble.
