Hey all just finished racking my 1st batch to glass carboy a brewers best american amber and my numbers are right on the money. I racked because I want to start another batch. I do believe you can just stay in primary though!! Tasted it a little bitter and cloudy but surprisingly good!! Seems like not a full 5 gallons though!! Thanks for all the info. A great site and am eager to brew another batch. Thinking of 7 days in carboy and then to bottling. Any suggestions as to clarifying the brew?.
I guess Tom Petty is right "The waiting is the hardest part"!!!!!!
