I went home for lunch and decided to go ahead and put my first brewed beer into the secondary to clear and age. I broke my hydrometer so I don't know what the gravity is but it tasted excellent I thought. It has somewhat of a sparkling water type fizz to it (just slightly), is that alright or normal? You can taste the alcohol in it too. I figured I would try and bottle it in a couple of weeks.

The fizz is normal, it's just CO2 coming out of solution. You should be fine to bottle in 2 weeks.

hopefully it was done. a broken hydrometer means you weren't 100% certain. how long was it in primary?

it'll probably be just fine, give it a solid 2 weeks in secondary to clear up and start to mellow out.
