I have pitched the yest around 36h ago, there is no bubbling and the solution from my two bubble airock is being pushed out which means that fermentation has started. The tap of my fermentor became convex and when I pushed it downwards some of the CO2 got out through the airlock but it does not make its way out on its own. I am afraid that the solution will finally get out of the airlock... Any advice?

Yes - leave it be. Your lid (it sounds like you are using a bucket) isn't sealing very well. But no worries, the pressure inside will prevent nasties from getting in.

thanks for the reply, it is allright now. The bucket is sealing well, it is only half full so it took some time to produce enough pressure to push the co2 out.

Yep, I had the same problem this weekend. No bubbles....but tons of Krausen in the bucket. Was gonna re-pitch but decided to swap out lids this morning. Sanitized a new lid and popped it on there. Bubbling like a MOFO now Happy Brewer = happy life.

If you see krausen, everything is fine. Airlock bubbles are not at all important to the process. You would've been fine leaving the original lid on.

Smell it. If you can smell the "bubbles" (CO2 emission) you are good.

I know that but it is still unsettling to not "see" the bubbles. The brewing process is an interactive event for me and I like to "hear" the beer doing its thing. Swapping out a lid isn't too difficult and it confirmed what I already knew was happening
