So, I started my first batch 5 days ago. It is a honey ale made from a kit and I have a couple questions.
1) I am curious for any veteran's take on whether I should rack my first batch to secondary or let it sit in primary for two weeks.
2) How should I go about assessing the gravity of the beer -- do I do that when I am going to rack to secondary? Or do I rack after I've checked for an acceptable gravity on consecutive days?
I've been reading through a few homebrewing books, but haven't come across anything that answers these questions.
Thanks in advance for any input!
