RDWHAHB, once you transfer to the secondary the fermentation is essentially over and you are using that vessle for clarification and aging.

cheers

this batch is doing the right thing! You should move to the secondary tank for clarifying and conditioning after the primary fermentation is over. I use the 1-2-3 rule- One week in primary (or more), two weeks in secondary, three in the bottle. Usually I leave it in the primary for 10 days or so, because of my work schedule.

This just means you transfered your previous beers a bit too early. If you rack before fermentation is done, you're just going to get additional sediment in your secondary. I like to wait untill all activity has stopped and it actually begins to clear. THEN I rack it. What that means is most batches sit in primary for 10-14 days. This is tough if you don't brew enough, you get anxious.

I'd imagine that, if you get high before you taste it, that might have some effect on your judgment...but what do I know?
