Now were at 3 days in the secondary for a total of 9 days. If you look at the carboy you can see bubbles/carbonation like crazy! Ive noticed this since the transfer. Is this normal? do I want this to stop?
this is my 5th batch and havnt seen this before, OG was 1.042
I would let it sit a bit longer in primary next time, if you start doing bigger beers, it won't be done fermenting before you transfer and you may not reach your FG. Even after you hit FG, it's good to let it sit for another few days, as hard as it may be to wait, it'll give better beer.
The act of transferring will also cause the CO2 to come out of solution just by being disturbed. Totally normal though, shouldn't have an issue with it.
