If it's in the garage, and the temperature is anything like it is in Ireland these days it's probably a bit cold out there methinks. Get yourself a heat mat or something (can get a heat pad in argos quite cheaply, or a homebrew store) and insulate with an old sleeping bag/lagging jacket/blanket.freddykreuger666 said:im starting to freak out as its now gone 48 hours and it only has a slight bit of bubbles/foam on top that isnt anything dramatic. it smells of flat beer and im pretty sure it is airtight. cos when i push lid down air rushes into the airlock. i think it mite be a bit cold as i got in the garage and im in the uk. i aint allowed to bring it in my house so im gonna have to hope it aint too cold. wot shud i do to make it warm and make it ferment?
