Default no krausen(foam)

Ok I racked my first batch last night into the secondary. When I took off the cover their was no Krausen (foam) but when I check the specific gravity it was right on! Should I be concerned with no Krausen (foam)?

The Krausen will fall when the yeast has finished so spot on for both things.

Right, if the krausen hasn't fallen it is probably too early to rack. Wheat beers might retain a krausen even though they are done fermenting, but not normally.

Default Primary Secondary

When the krausen falls that means your primary fermentation is done and your secondary stage has started. David 42 makes a good point about wheat beers being different because I guess all that protein. But I don't know much about wheat beers.

No reason to be concerned, you just have to wait now. And wait. Suspense.
