Default Step two complete!

I racked my Hop Devil clone into secondary/clearing tank today after a week in primary. This is my second batch and first secondary.....I have to say that a glass carboy adds some excitement. (I really need to get a life)

This is sort of like being an expectant dad viewing your wife's sonogram at each stage of pregnancy


Stage one, primary:


Secondary 5 minutes after sealing the bottle: (the foam is from the star san)


Empty ferment bucket with remnents of fermentation and trub:


Now the wait till bottling day. I'm looking forward to watching the beer clear.

Everything is clean and ready for my next Brew.


Tommy

Nice work! I assume you covered the secondary with a towel or blanket or something after the picture. Thanks for the pictures.

Direct sunlight or uv light from flourescent lighting can "damage" the beer and cause "off" flavors.

Wow, thanks for that. I knew about that after bottling but never gave it a thought at secondary.
For the photo the light was on but that's a laundry room and is dark 98% of the time except for when someone goes in to wash or dry, or iron something. Maybe 5 minutes at a time here and there? The light is incandescent and not too bright, especially where the carboy is.

Should I move it to a closet?

Thanks again
Tommy

If your afraid of the light you can just wrap a towel around it.

Either that or cover it with a towel or blanket like lorenae said. That carboy is full of liquid much to precious to take any chances with...

I have a closet in that laundry room and I'm gauging the temp in it right now since it's warm in my basement, 74-77 degrees most times and we're expecting a hot week this week.

I have my secondaries set up in my laundry room as it's the coolest room in the house. I just throw a dark colored towel around it and it's fine. There's no direct light in there, but during daylight hours it's not exactly totally dark.

If you simply cover it, there's no need to move it to a closet, unless you want to.

"The light is incandescent" and there is no sunlight; you should be ok. A blanket is always good to stabilize temperatures.
