Hello,

About nine days ago I started my first batch of home brew and at the moment it seems that there is still activity happening in the carboy. I pitched the ale yeast at 75F and everything was looking great, but now that it has been awhile I'm starting to get concerned if it should still be fermenting after this many days for an ale. The foaming stopped a few days after pitching and it has had some activity since and is currently bubbling out of the airlock every 30-60 seconds.

The room temperature where the carboy is at is a little lower then I would like, at 62F, but I really have no where else to put it without it getting a lot of light.

Should I be concerned that it is still fermenting or should I wait it out a few more days. Also, since it has been awhile, should I move it to a secondary fermenter?

Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it much. If it were my beer I would rack to the secondary. Sounds like everything is going just fine.
