Okay so I may as well get those niggling questions out of my head before they get me going all crazy.

My first AG baby is sat on the side bubbling away after just 6 hours.
Is that normal and is there such a thing as a ferment starting too fast.

I thought the yeasty beasties needed to hang out and party before doing some work. If there's not enough of them will they be work shy.

What's that line about all work and no play?

6 hours is good. Relax you did good. 4 hour start is even better.

You used a dry yeast for this batch, if I remember correctly. They have a lot more cells (typically 100 billion (US)). That means after three growth periods, the population is 400B. It takes a liquid yeast 12-20 hours to get to that level.

Try tossing a batch on the cake from the previous batch, if you want a fast start. One IPA batch blew the lid off the bucket 30 minutes after I dumped it on a Mild cake.
