Default I got some beer in my airlock

My first batch started fermenting last night and looks like it came up through the airlock. It didnt blow it off or anything. I am wondering if I should replace the airlock with a clean one? The beer is in the airlock instead of water now. Could the sugars cause the the airlock to stick (three piece)?

That happens all the time! I either put on a blow-off tube if it's continuing to happen, or just change out the airlock.

You're welcome!

I assume you mean "man" in the generic "dude" sense, right?
