      Cris and Monte,

      Im sorry but tis a good idea to stir your fermetation at least once a
      day. For starting, you need to add oxygen to your brew to get the yeast
      multiplying during the growth phases. Then if you have a good one
      going, there will be a cap of bubbles that develops on top that you need
      to stir down. After the first 36 hours, stir lightly, since the yeast
      has now enter the anerobic phase and you dont want to add and O2.

      Good Luck.

      JB. aka Waldo.

      Let it sit a week or more until it stops bubbling - the clarify it, and
      run it through your still :)
