No Fermentation

What went wrong? Was this supposed to happen? Should I throw it out? What do I do now?

No Fermentation

Postby RenegadeBrewing » Mon Mar 19, 2012 4:56 pm

I started my brewing and everything last wednesday and on thursday saw a few bubbles coming out of the airlock but after thursday there has been nothing... I am afraid that my yeast is not working...is there any chance to save my brew?

Lid seal

Fermentation CO2 may be escaping around the lid seal. The best way to determine the degree of fermentation is by taking gravity readings. If the gravity is dropping you're probably ok. Of course, maintain good sanitary procedures when taking samples.
