I added another 6 grams of Munton's dry yeast...

I have a cream ale sitting here waiting. Should I leave it in the primary for another 7-10 days or can I transfer it to the secondary and let it sit if the SG is right?

Kegging vs. Bottling

I understand that it is much more convenient to keg beer instaed of bottle it. But as far as the process goes, is there a huge difference? Do you still have to prime it in a keg? How long do you...
