And check your gravity. If its changing its all good...

And to second Unibrows comment, I ferment in buckets and haven't had a good bubbling airlock in a year. But gravity keeps changing and beer keeps a-making...

Looked under my bucket lid and seen krausen,smells good too. Other than taking gravity samples, is it safe to say as long as there's krausen everything is ok? Should I aerate it (with O2 from a bottle tubing and diffuser stone-all sanitized)to be safe?

OK,bought a hydrometer and got a reading of 1.032 on Tue. evening (brewed Sun. afternoon), too bad I couldn't read the OG from the start.

ok,mine is in the corny keg getting carbonated. Can anyone tell me what my alcohol content is? I first brewed 2 sundays ago but didnt have a hydrometer till tuesday. My "og" on tuesday was 1.035 @63 degrees and my fg was 1.012 @72 degrees. I know this isn't actual alcohol but rather a minimum. Thanks.

If you followed the original recipe your abv should be close to 5%

The reading you took on Tuesday wasn't an accurate OG number since it had been fermenting a bit.

Thanks,poured a glass(still needs to be carbonated more) and found still cloudy which i think time will clear up a bit,good smelling beer. I followed the recipe exactly but replaced 1 lemon zest for 1 orange. So far it tastes a little like a Hoegaarden/Bluemoon mix. Thank you for sharing.
