Default Little help

I just started about 30m ago I made a yeast starter a little juice with 1/2 teaspoon of yeast dumped 2 cups sugar, yeast starter and the rest of my yeast it is now burping good and working but a little foam/juice came up into the air lock, is this normal?

Yes, and good pic to show the problem! :-)

Ok, in the future, try to leave more 'head space ' at the top of the bottle for foaming. That will help prevent getting it in your airlock.

Now I have another ? When this is finished do I have to rack it? Or can I just pour it into another container and not let the yeast get into that container, then do I have to fridge it or can I start drinking?

You can do either one. For a simple batch like this its best to drink it 'young', but at the same time you want to leave behind as much of the sediment/lees as possible. I would rack it, let it sit for a week or so, then put it into whatever container you plan to drink from.

Hope it comes out good!
