I just finished my first attempt at brewing a few hours ago and was wondering if what I noticed was normal. First this brew is an Irish Red Ale. What I noticed was after I added the LME and before the wort came to a boil there was a little formation of foam.



A few minutes (~3 min) later I saw the first boil bubble and added the hops. All the foam disappeared and didn't come back. Is this normal?


Just curious. Thanks.

Don't worry, this grasshopper won't eat the yellow snow. I've just read and heard a lot of people warn about boil over and this one wasn't even close.

Thanks.
