Well I checked it when i got home...it looks like there are some light colored globs in there...not sure quite how to describe it. it is hard to see through the keg.

It's okay to use a flashlight, just don't open the top. It can take a bit to kick off sometimes and others faster. Sometimes a thick foam and other times a thin one. Have bit of patience.

I still have the fermenter in the cooler with an ice pack. I have a little bit of foam going on in there so it looks like it is going...I'll just keep checking and make sure I keep the temp cool and steady. This is the light beer recipe so I don't know how that may have an effect on how much action goes on.

There is never a reason to go longer than 3 weeks fermenting.  Bottle, store at 70 or higher, and let it sit 4 weeks at least.  Then, put in the frig only what you'll drink 3 days later.  Let the rest continue to condition at room temp.

Bottled my batch today. I put the fermenter in the fridge three days ago. I came out with ten of the 25 oz bottles which should be around 2 gals. I forgot about getting unscented dish soap to clean the fermenter with after bottling. All walmart had was the 7th generation dishwasher pods so i grabbed those. I put one in the fermenter and filled it with warm water..im gonna let it soak for a bith then risnse it out real good. I'm going to order some something more appropriate to clean the fermenter. My house is right about 68 degrees so I should be okay storing the bottles for the next 4 weeks.
