I'm in the UK too. My kitchen floor is tiled so probably having the same problem. It's probably dropping to 15 degrees at night and hitting 30 when we are cooking.

My grandad had a glass heating element but it doesn't seem to have clear controls, so I was reluctant to use it. I have a local brewing shop so I will grab a thermometer.

Even when we were cooking it wasn't making too much of a difference try moving it next to the radiator if you can and put some cardboard or polystyrene under it to reduce the cold transfer that and what the other guys said it could be finished but I think it's more likely a bit too cold for it.

Where abouts in the uk are u ? I'm Nottingham.

Thanks for the advice, I will put it next to the radiator on a mat and see how it goes.

I'm in Stratford Upon Avon in Warwickshire.

You should be seeing some kind of action by today. 18C (64.4F) is a good ale fermenting temp.

Yeah you should have some activity in your airlock by now I would just double check you temperature of the liquid and not just the surrounding temp and also just check that your lid is properly clipped down I tend to just press the very centre of the lid and you should see the airlock bubble if its secure enough :-)
