Primary for over two weeks. No activity in airlock and the FG may have been lower than the reported 1.02 as I did not correct for temperature. Still I racked it already and it is now in the cellar (65-67 degrees). After transfer, I did notice some activity in the airlock, but it was very long in between burps. I also purged the carboy with co2 before and after transfer so as to minimize O2 exposure. My 5 gallon carboy was already in use, so I had to use a 6 gallon one.
If 1.02 sounds high, should I allow it to stay in the cellar at warmer temp to finish before cold crashing or is it necessary to cold crash this brew? Sorry for the inexperienced questions.
