OK i've spent an hour or so reading post in this forum ( some good info ), so hopefully I can give enough info..
I started 2 days ago, with a kit from Brewers Best, recipe for Continental Pilsner. I used a stainless steel 2.25 gal pot for my brewpot, so I started with 2 gal of good old lake michigan tap water just as the recipe says. I only spilt a few teaspoons in the whole boil process, so that was good.
I poured the brew from the pot into my primary bucket, cooled it to about 80deg, in an hour or so, then filled the bucket to 5gal of 70 deg water then added the yeast and stirred.
My orginal gravity was 1.034, the recipe called for 1.044-1.048, so not sure what happened or what will be result.
After amost 1 day I'm getting bubbles in the air lock, 2 days after 'bucketing' the bubbles are pretty slow, about 1 every 30-40 sec. The current temp is 74 deg on the temp gage on the bucket.
So I'm a little confused, after the 3-7 days when my final gravity is correct, I transfer to the 2nd bucket 5 gal with the spicket at the bottom, and bottle?
