i bought a kit from the local homebrew store and it contained everything you need to make beer, all i need was some of the tools to brew it up. it came with its own yeast packet that i saved just in case, but ironically my dog ate it. none of the ingredients were labeled so i don't know what the specific recipe is, i don't even know what kind of hops they gave me. needless to say i won't buy a pre-made kit from that store ever again.
i chilled the wort to 60 degrees so i could get an o.g. reading and that is the temp i pitched my yeast, but when i went to sanitize the hydrometer, i broke it so i need to buy a new one.
upon further inspection i found there is activity I'm just using a fermenter bucket that appears to not seal up tight, so with that being said i really appreciate that small bit of info that i should have known from the start. so no problem after all and thanks for the replies!!!
