Default Fermentation stops after 1 day.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it stops after one day. I then swirl the primary and notice some activity but it stops shortly there after. This is my second batch and it happened again. The temp is good, I use wyeast and pop it about 4 hours before pitching. Should I use a starter?

Have you confirmed it has stopped with your hydrometer?

What leads you to believe it stopped?

Well, I should have read more post before posting myself. I am new to all of this and what I should have said was my airlock stopped bubbling but from reading some post that's a bad judge of fermentation.

I have not confirmed with hydrometer. I should do that today. Thanks.
