    Fermentation can take 24 to 72 hrs to show visible signs.

    It should be fine. I guess I should have warned you about that. When I shook my Imperial IPA, I took the airlock off and used my thumb to cover the rubber grommet. Needless to say when I removed my thumb after shaking, it exploded like a volcano through the airlock. Luckily I took it outisde...
