I have been called away tomorrow and the beer is due to be bottled a few days after.

Will it damage it to stay in the secondary an extra 10 days. This is only my second batch.

I have no idea Please advise as soon as you can.

omg I was so afraid the answer would be no. I would have then had to run out to buy a capper and to do it. This is wonderful news
THANK YOU

With more time in the secondary, it will need less conditioning time in the bottle.
