Hey
I was fermenting a wheat beer and after 2 days the foam disappeared. Is that normal?

Thanks a lot

In brewing terminology, your krausen has fallen. It is perfectly normal - very typical for most beers.

That being said, you might still have a little krausen residue floating on top, or it might never go away... it depends on the recipe.

Not a problem - I'm happy to help. That's the point of the beginner forum, no?

Incidentally, a couple of months ago, I put together an article that you might find useful as a new brewer: Common Sense for Homebrewers.
