You're welcome. But racking to secondary asap can be a smoking gun. Always make sure you have a stable FG before racking. Otherwise,the fermentation can be interupted & stall. It was thought in earlier times that the yeast settled because they were dying. Maybe back in the 70's to 90's yeasts weren't as good as today. But nowadays,that old autolysis bit is just another muth disspelled. Some LHBS owners that have been brewing for a long time still preach it. Twaddlespeak says I.
At this point,to secondary or not is purely a matter of personal choice.
Just get a stable FG first!

Good point Union! Thanks! Yeah, I made sure to get that FG stable before I racked it onto the secondary. I think I still want to try it e way others on this read mentioned (keeping it in the primary much longer) just so I can compare. I'm just glad this first batch turned out so good- got lots of compliments and gave a lot away so this next batch will be more for me anyway, LOL.
