Yesterday i racked to a secondary after 8 days in a primary.
Today I noticed some small white foamy looking bubbles forming on top of the beer.
Is this a bad thing?

id watch it for blowoffs if you dont have much headspace cause it seems youre fermenting still. other then that youll be fine

Yes I screwed up..... this is my first batch.
I did the Honey Bee ale kit from midwest and the instructions said to rack to secondary after 5-7 days. My airlock is bubbling vey slowly.
Thanks

8 days is quick, let it sit in your secondary for at least another 2 weeks before bottle or keg, other than that your only problem is that you now have an empty primary.

You will sometimes get very tiny CO2 bubbles that seem to cling to a piece of yeast that floats to the top. It happens to most of us sometime or other when learning and then wonder if something is wrong. You will be OK.

yes thats a problem...an empty primary should be a crime solve it before the homebrew police come lol. for future reference do not follow instructions burn them. wait for steady hydrometer readings to tell when fermentation is done in the future.
