What temp did you ferment at? My first brew I didn't pay too much attention to the temp and it got up to 80 degrees and fermented really fast. Result was non too pleasant but a very good learning experience. As long as your temps are good, I wouldn't worry too much about how fast your krausen rises and falls.
Well I would have to say it never got above 75 degrees, I have been checking every chance I can on it.
When you say 75 degrees, is that the reading on the thermometer strip (assuming this is what you are using)?
Yes, I moved it to a cooler spot in the basement just to be certain, I will see if it cools it anymore.
F or future reference, try to keep it around 65F. You'll end up with better beer that way. Using a secondary is kind of an outdated idea any more. It's seldom really necessary. As was said above, if you just leave it in the primary for 2-3 weeks you'll be fine.
