Alright gang, I have a question. I have an Imperial Rye IPA in my secondary, and it will be three weeks this Saturday. I checked it last night, and it looks like I have a second fermentation going on in there? About 1/4" of foam below the dry hop level, and visible activity up through the carboy. I don't know if it's from a warm front that backed-up over us earlier this week and it "woke-up" what yeast was left in it, or what. I have a good bit of sediment on the bottom, and it's started to collect on the sides of the carboy too. Should I let it keep going, or should I put it in my keg frig to stop fermentation and force carbonate after a couple days? I know it can't hurt to sit a little longer, but like I said, it's got a good bit of sediment on the bootm. Guess I could rack again to another carboy????
