First Batch---need help.
Me and a buddy of mine is making our first batch. We have done all the boiling and and put it in the fermentor. Well this morning he sent me a video of it doing what it was suppose to do, bubbling. Well he came home from work and looked at it and the bubbler was brown and had sediments in the bottom of it. It also looked as if it had bubbled out of the bubbler. There was a little bit of liquid on the lid and the top of the bubbler was wet also....

Beer should still be OK. When the beer ferments, it creates a lot of foam. If you don't have headspace in your fermenter, it'll come out the airlock. (Use a 6 gallon bucket next time!)

Clean your airlock and replace. The foam cap should recede after 1 week. After that, you can move your beer to a secondary fermenter, or let it set in the primary for a while.
