I’ve just started my first brew with Northern Brewers Duluxe Starter Kit. I followed the directions for the Nut Brown Ale Recipe Kit exactly. A Wyeast packet was added when the wort was at 70 degrees.
Fermentation started within 12 hours. By 18 hours there was an active 3" kraeusen. By 36 hours in I could see no activity but there is still a 2" kraeusen. I’m now 60 hours in and nothing has changed.
There was never a lot of bubbling through the air lock. The only thing I noticed was some “pushing” of the liquid in the air lock. The carboy has been in a room with a constant temperature of 69 degrees. The fermometer is currently at 72-74 degrees.
Maybe I’m just paranoid and this is normal for this recipe. The lack of bubbling in the airlock has me wondering if things are progressing as they should.
Any help would be appreciated.
