you have to trust your hydrometer, not visible signs. it is a common mistake.
especially with a higher gravity beer, the move to a secondary vessel should only be made after 2-4 days of hydrometer readings that are all the same. even then, there are biological processes going on that can be halted by racking to secondary.
if you learn to use the hydrometer and allow extra time in the primary vessel for yeast clean up and settling, you will take your beer's quality to a much higher level. it is one of the easist things you can do to improve your brewing.
it's not the blood you've spilled that gets you what you want, its the blood you share. friends, family, community: these are the most valuable things a man can have.
