Dry hopping in secondary
Hey all. I'm about to venture into a secondary fermentation for my first time. I'm dry hopping a pale ale. In doing this, should I just syphon from the primary into the secondary? Or should I transfer it another way? Not really sure what that would be. Also, I've read that the excess air in the carboy should be fine during this process, is that correct?

Siphoning to the secondary is fine just be sure to get the hose to the bottom of the carboy and try not to splash it too much.

Excess air won't hurt anything it's normal.
