Ok, so this is my first time dry-hopping. I'm guessing it's normal for the hops to turn brown, right? I mean , how are they expected to retain their green for a week or two?

They are dry hops floating away on the surface. It's only been a couple days.

The hops absorb some of the beer so a little colour change is normal. Don't worry about it.
