Ya just let it sit the 14 days. Secondary is just for conditioning. If you were going to bottle sooner there is no need for secondary and many people would argue the need for secondary at all. The theory I assume your beer is going on would be that you don't want autolysis from the beer sitting on the yeast cake for too long in primary.


Primary~ Empty

Secondary~ Mosaic IPA


Ransack Port Oak Aged RIS

Blood Orange Hefe

Bonne Nuit Saison
