Foam after fermentation
 
Hey the bubling pretty much stopped and i have this foam on top and when i bottle it do i just keep it or do i try to remove it?

What kind of foam do you mean? After the krausen has fallen, it shouldn't have any foam on top. Maybe a few bubbles or yeasty bits floating around, but I've never seen actual foam on top after fermentation.

Can you take a picture?

ill take a picture it almost doesnt bubble but still has a pretty thin layer of foam on top

Sounds like the krausen just has not fallen all the way. Just give it time.

okey ill give it some more time before i bottle it

Just a quick thing to check also is if the airlock/blowoff tube is clogged. That would make it stop bubbling and still have krausen on top.

Krausen Falling
 
I just racked to secondary after 10 days... The krausen had not fallen.. Is this ok?

DId you take any gravity readings? That should be your indicator of when to rack into the secondary or bottles.

Cheers
