I'll have to remember that next time I do this. Any ale yeast recommendations that would probably be more up to the task. I had to use a wine yeast for this but im pretty sure it will be very dry when its done. I used Lavlin K1-V116 this time.

Also another question, at about how many pops per minute should you rack to the secondary. I'm used to beer where the fermentation is done in a matter of days. Thanks.
In Primary - Secret Soviet Stout (Russian Imperial)
In Secondary - None :(
Bottled - None :(
Up next - Flemish Red Ale
Kegged - Empty :(

I rack to the secondary when the sg is around 1.020 or less but if you're using a container with an airlock and not much headspace, then there is no need. Just rack if you have a ton of sediment in the bottom, whenever that is.
