What is that strainer bag hanging in there?

I see no evidence of krausen. It should not be totally gone so soon.

At 2 days your fermentation should be at it's height.

Recipe, yeast, process, OG and present gravity?

More information is necessary but with the information given it looks like something is dreadfully wrong!

Oh! you changed the picture!

It looks fine. Keep the temperature of the beer in the low to mid sixties for the next 3 weeks then take gravity readings over three days. If the numbers are stable you are ready to bottle.

I think its a green ale......It's not done fermenting yet. You have to check its gravity to know where it is at.

Thats the wort, where is the picture of the fermenter?

Yea sorry guys I accidentally put the wrong picture at first. I'm still new and learning all these numbers. I didn't pre check the gravity got to excited and it Slipped my mind. Just kind of wondering if its normal for all the bubbles to be gone already.
