Default How fast from primary to secondary

Bad timing and a need to get some batches in the works forced me to brew on Sat and then have to transfer to secondary and reuse the yeast cake tomorrow. Is there anything wrong with transfering while there is still pretty good action in the primary? Thanks MPW

That's four days? Ought to be plenty of time.

Ideally, you'd like to wait until action has tapered a bit, but four days should be enough time, depending on the style you're brewing and the yeast used. You'll probably be fine.
