What you can expect to see after starting a batch of Turbocider
Times below are approximate - it depends on the exact juices, yeast, and temperature.

Time 0: the yeast mostly sinks

Around 1 hour: Yeast starts to rise

About 2 hours in: Yeast starts to reach top

Something like 4 to 6 hours: Yeast starts to form a crust
K-yeast crust

Maybe 9 hours? I forget: Yeast distributed throughout

About half a day, maybe a bit more: A good foamy krausen

Much later: Foam collapses (not always)

Sometime in Day 2: Liquid now opaque - full of yeast

And after that: Softer foamy top

Around the end of day 3 most of the foam will disappear, but don't be tempted to think it's OK to top up- leave that to day 5, or the very end of day 4, or it'll climb out of the lock.

Current Mood: blahblah
