I plan on brewing my first batch (primary) this wednesday. The kit I have instructs me to go right to bottles (which I have). I have a ton of grolsch bottles which I hear work nicely
My question is, instead of bottling, I read many people go to a stage called secondary? As in fermenting again in another bucket or carboy? What purpose does this serve, do you just leave it there instead of bottling, or do you bottle afterwards: effectively ferminting/activating the yeast three times?
