Default New to beer making

I have just started my frist batch of home brew all be it from a time. its is now sitting in the fermenting tub doing itsd thing. But from memory and I am going back a few years to when I was a lad and my dad brewed his own beer, the fermentation bucket my dad used had some sort of airlock bubbling away on it. the one I have has no airlock and the lkid is now starting to buckle, is this the norm??

Yes, you need an airlock or blowoff tube to vent the CO2 Fermentation lock - Home Brewing Wiki , should help.

Just take the lid off and set it on top for now. This will allow the CO2 to escape and not let anything get in until you can get an airlock in it.
