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.

Glad things are going well! What yeast did you use? Let us know how it turns out. :-)

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!
