Default bubbling rate

hey everyone, first post on here
my first bacth of beer has been brewed and has been bubbling away for a couple of days in the primary quite happily (well actually it was a slow starter - 48hrs to get going), I was just wondering what an acceptable rate of bubbling is? It's all well and good to say it is bubbling, but surely quicker bubbling means more rapid fermentation? Mine's going along at about a bubble every second or two. Is this quick/slow/normal?
now for the longest month of my life......

Sounds good (normal). Relax and have a brew. It will slow down in about a day or two. I typically rack to secondary after about 5-7 days. At that point the airlock is clicking about once every 60 seconds.

However, I should add, that I watched my airlock constantly when I first started brewing last May. Also, I couldn't last the full month, I drank a few after two days in the bottle.

Secondary : empty
KEG: empty

May your beer never be empty, and a roof always over your head, and when your day comes, may you get to heaven before the devil knows your dead.

As long as its bubbling, and/or it puts on a kreautsen, you're good to go. You might want to take steps to decrease your lag time, though.
May you go marching in three-measure time

Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
