I'm brewing a morebeer.com porter kit and it's been in the fermenter for 10 days. My OG was 1.053 and now it's at 1.020-1.019 and it's been the same for the past 3 days. It's still bubbling but very slow. Should I rack it to a secondary and let it sit more or just bottle it up and call it done. Tastes pretty good so far :)

Still bubbling??? Don't even THINK of touching this beer yet. Give it 11 more days ... thats three weeks, the minimum beer should be on yeast. Patience works well in brewing ... am i the first to say this? Yeast love us. Yeast is your friend. Treat them well.

I'd leave it until it is at least 2 weeks in primary, then rack to secondary. Bubbling in the airlock is not really an indication of fermentation so you could probably rack it earlier than that if your hydro reading hasn't changed.
