Hello! So my friend and I just started brewing not too long ago. We bought a homebrewing kit from a local homebrewery store, and we just happened to get another kit from a friend who didnt use his.. so we can make 2 or even 3 batches at a time basically.
Anyways, we have a light wheat ale in the secondary and tonight we just made up a clone of Rogue Deadguy Ale. I have a couple questions if you guys wouldnt mind helping us out
1) The recipe for the rogue clone says keep in primary @ 60F for 3-5 days then transfer to secondary until fermentation is complete. Im not sure what exactly that means, do I do as I did my previous batch and wait until no bubbles come out of the airlock before I transfer to secondary?
2) Then the recipe says to rack off trub and store secondary @40-50F. How does one do this? Is trub the bits of hops from using hop pellets or what exactly is it? I used whole hops in a hop bag so there arent hop bits floating around.
3) Last question and maybe the most important... we had a boil over (looked away for 1 second!!) and after dumping the wort in the primary I noticed the malt extract/rock sugar had burned a bit on the bottom... could this have ruined my beer by making it taste burnt?
Thank you for your advice!!
