Hey everyone I have my first beer (an octoberfest) in the primary now and its bubbling a bit slowly. The day after I got about 1 bubble/3seconds. Today 6 days later I get about 1/20seconds. Is there something wrong. They are large bubbles...

If it's bubbling all is well. Don't get too concerned about the rate.

What's the temp? It should be in the fridge by now since it's a lager.

Lagers take longer to ferment out. I've had mine in the secondary for 3 months.

Its actually not a lager. It uses a white labs ale yeast, but its in an oktoberfest kit so.... its a lager imitation...a fake oktoberfest brewed in may with ale yeast and fermented until next week...
