Just sharing...

I've got an IPA with Wyeast 1968 going in my carboy. I didn't see anything happen the first 3 days (well, a bubble here and there). But when I checked today (day 5), the thing is going nuts! The airlock is bubbling several times a second, and whats cool is I can see tons of stuff swirling around in the carboy. It's my 4th brew and I don't recall ever seeing stuff move around in the carboy before...

I guess since it didn't really start going til day 4 I'll let it sit in the primary a little longer than I was planning before bottle conditioning.

Yep, that'll happen. Was there a question in that post?

If not, seems like everything is going quite well. Enjoy that brew when it's ready! :mug:
