Sweet. Read all the stickys, and ferment COOL. Low 60's IN THE BEER is best. Mid 60's IN THE BEER is OK. Beer temps can be up to 10F warmer than the room. Have fun and good luck!

Thanks for the advice! I will be sure to do that. Brewing went really well.

When should I expect some airlock activity? I just put the lid on my primary fermenter last night at about 5pm.

There are cases where it can take three days. Depends on the temperatures, the yeast itself, the wort, and so much more. That being said, usually within 24-48 hours. But don't even *think* of being concerned until after 72 hours. If you've done a starter, then 4 hours isn't uncommon.

I've pitched on batches around 7:30-9pm,& saw bubbling at 3am or so. Def by 6 or 7 am. But I like to re-hydrate dry yeast to decrease lag time.
