Default primary to secondary

Alright, 3rd brew... Cooked it sunday night, put in primary bucket. Started bubblin that night, late that is. And now, its tuesday in the middle of the day, and its done fermenting. The airlock isnt poppin at all. Should i wait the extra 4-5 days before i throw it in the secondary, or should i do it tomorrow?

Its sort of a pale ale, 7lbs LME with safale s-04 yeast.

just check your gravity if its done transfer. I recomend floating Co2 if you have the capability.

Rather than checking gravity over the next 3 days just wait the next 3 days and transfer.

Isn't going to hurt a thing.

I agree with Pogue. Just wait the full week, then rack to secondary for 2 weeks, then bottle. It will condition in the primary some as well.
