What am i supposed to do if my yeast stopped bubbling only after 12 or so hours? the kit says 2-3 days. I tried disturbing it but that didn't help. This is my very first time brewing so i don't know the norms yet.

Leave it alone. RDWHAHB. It will be fine. Take a gravity reading in 2 weeks. Check your gravity, and I bet it will be done fermenting.

Relax Don't Worry. Have A Home Brew. You need a hydrometer for the Specific Gravity reading, pull off some of your beer and float the hydrometer in it. Read where the beer meets the line and you have your SG or gravity.
