You need a CO2 reactor, and airstone is very inefficient. See the FAQ's and
check out the KRIB website for more info.

No, it's OK

No, that's a good way to make a mess.

>3) Is is too cold? The house temperatute is 68-70f.

Temperature is fine.

>4) Does it just take a while to get started?

Yes, give it a few days. You also may have a leak. If you can smell the
brew around any of the fittings it's leaking. Make your self a ractor.
