Default 1st 2 brews are goers (I think)

I have a Coopers Stout 21l (with 1kg brewing sugar, 500g medium spraymalt 1058 OG) which has now 24hrs in got a whopping froth on the top and a Wilko cervesa 22l (1kg brewing sugar, 500g light spraymalt 1056 OG) which has a froth on and seems to have clouded a little? Wishing my life away until bottling time!
Anyone else notice a bit of cloudiness when doing a cervesa?

Still early into fermentation, patience, cloudiness is nothing to worry about, and its doing something if its got froth

Right, done a quick check with hydrometer after 6 days. Stout is at 1026 down from 1058 and Cervesa is down to 1020 from 1056. Does this sound about right?? There were bubbles in the trial jar for both of them so I guess they are still fermenting but the krausen has died off on them both, just after reassurance that I'm still on track for 80+ bottles of victory!

yes, but you should if you've seen a krausen form just leave them for 2 or 3 weeks depending on the OG. don't keep opening the fv to check.
