No visible signs of infection... been cold crashing for 24 hours

Beer tastes great...

However, the airlock is bubbling and I can't figure it out. I couldn't find anything when i researched this...

Any ideas?

Most likely it's sucking air in due to the pressure change.

Air was going out not in... I thought the same thing at first.

Airlocks bubble for various reasons...Doesn't mean anything.

Did you happen to move your fermenter to place it in where you cold crashed?

But you moved it in there over 24 hours ago, right....You disturbed the fermenter, you stirred up co2. It doesn't need to be instaneous. You could have hit the fermenter a week ago vaccuming, and that co2 trapped in the trub could take awhile to break free and star release through the airlock.
