Will be letting it set another 1 1/2 days (or when airlock stops) then take another reading before transfering to secondary fermenter.
Wait a full week, then transfer to the secondary for 2 full weeks, then let it sit in bottles for 3 full weeks. Start up your second batch ASAP so that you build up a surplus.
The first batch is the hardest.
