Finally fementation. You ladies and gentilemen will have to walk me though some of this. Thanks for help so far. My question is, what is normal active during primary fermentation with an airlock? Mine is working about 1 every second and maybe a little faster.

That's just about right.

The only time I have had huge activity is when I fermented raw apple juice. Blew the traps several times on successive nights.

Other than that I get somewhere between a 1/4th inch and 3/4th's an inch of foam on the surface and about the same rate of bubbling you are seeing.

Good luck,
