Default Is this normal?

This is my first brew ever so I wanted to check. It's been in the fermenter for 3 days now and I went in to switch the blow out tube for the airlock. I wanted to know if this is normal or not...

I think so. Looks like healthy krausen to me.

That's good to hear. I used Columbus and cascade hops. They came with the brew package and I still need to get a scale so I'm not even sure exactly how much hops was used.

Looks fine and with columbus and cascade it should turn out tasty. Tasting and smelling after a few more days will give you a better idea.

Investing in a scale is a good idea. Head shops have really cheap electronic ones that work great.

You going to dry hop? If you haven't considered it, you should ( in my opinion). It add a nice dimension to any beer.

That actually brings another question. I can't seem to find any homebrew shops anywhere near me. Where would be good places to order supplies from?

I like Austin Homebrew Supply. Especially their flat rate shipping.

I like Northern Brewer & Midwest as well. But when I order ANYTHING online,I always use paypal. If you don't have it,get it NOW. CYA,man. Also,Try perusing The kitchen isle at Walmart. Lots of useable stuff there,like digital 10lb scales for $20. Love mine with it's glass top. Or dual layer fine mesh strainers & that sort of thing. Or the dollar tree stores for funnels,measuring cups & spoons. Complete sets of these things for a buck! Spray bottles too,one dollar. Dollar general has pots & stuff too. I got a nested set of SS stock pots (2G-5G) with lids & steamer trays,all polished,for $25 at Giant Eagle on sale around now (canning time). Walmart has kettles as well. You just gotta look anywhere that sells kitchen supplies...litterally anywhere. And Home Depot & Lowe's for clear tubing,pipes for mash tuns,etc. The grocery store baking needs isle is downright handy as well. Frozen fruits & jiuces for adding to beers...
