    Started my first brew today... and I may need some advice.

    Well I looked at it a few moments ago where it is stored in my room temperature closet, and it has TONS of small bubbles in the airlock. I lifted the lid slightly to peak inside (maybe a bad idea) and its indeed formenting, so I guess this is a good sign. Now that i know it is formenting, I...
