hi every body,

I prepared my wort on saturday evening. Sunday morning everything was good. Air lock was boubling. All sunday along everything was perfect; however, Monday morning it was stoped when I got up. I thought home was cold so I put some polar things on it for warm it up. Today (tuesday) there is still no boubles in airlock. But today is not cold - appx. 20 C -.

What was wrong about it? Or İs that allrigth like that?

Many thanks.

Nothing sounds wrong, give it a few more days and check the gravity using your hydrometer.


And stop using your airlock as a fermentation guage.

Remember your hydrometer is your best friend.:mug: and don't forget to make sure it is calibrated.

I have had a beer begin active fermenting and stop active fermenting within 48 hours of when I put it in the fermenter. Do not worry, the yeast know what they are doing, let them do their job. :)

What temperature are you fermenting at?

Let it ride. I wouldn't even bother with a hydrometer reading before 10 days myself. Some of them just ferment quickly, my current hefe started bubbling 6 hours after pitching yeast (sunday night), bubbled furiously most of Monday and this morning was slowed down to nearly nothing. That was at 66-67* - if it were warmer it probably would have gone even faster than that.

Dismiss the instructions. If you do not have a hydrometer, make sure the house is at proper temp minimum and let it ride. I'd probably not even look at it again until 2 weeks are up. It's likely done by then.

Your airlock is not a good indicator for fermentation. There could be a leak somewhere, or it's fermenting too slowly to be noticed, but still going.
