Making an English ale from a kit, OG was 1.056 and now its reading 1.015, so I am going to rack it to secondary. I tasted the beer from the hydrometer tube (and almost no more bubbling), and it tastes like beer, but a "softness" almost like its a bit weakly carbonated. Does that sound normal.

Even at fermentation temperature and normal air pressure, some CO2 will remain in the beer. When you transfer it to the cleaning tank, this will give you a blanket of CO2 and prevent oxidation.
