If there was any wild yeast or bug in your beer, it had no competition until you added your yeast. 
Congrats!  Now crack a cold one and root for the Colts!

Since the game sucks, check out this article. Fermented wort drops your pH, so the sooner the better!

For those following this thread, the beer has taken off like a bat out of hell. Started bubbling a lot this morning, and just opened up the lid for a temp. check and the krausen is high!

good news. by chance do you have a temp strip stuck to your plastic bucket?if you did, did you note temp of wort vs what bucket read?

No, I don't. Those generally fall off bc of the water bath. I do however have a thermapen I'll stick in the actual beer. I also use a little infrared thing that I aim at the outside of the fermenter.

What I've found in the past is that the beer is always a little warmer inside vs. what it shows on the infrared.

yeah reason i asked is it could save you opening up each time if you know the variance.
