I made a partial mash clone of Hobgoblin 11 days ago and had intended on moving to secondary today, but I still have active bubbling.
Do I go ahead and move it or wait till the bubbling stops? Haven't checked the gravity.

It could still be fermenting, or just outgassing C02. You won't know until you check the gravity.

Then, let it hang out for a little while longer. If you are using that Ringwood yeast, let it hang out for a good while longer.
