As already mentioned, if you don't know why you're doing a secondary, you probably don't need to do it. Also, if you are going to do a secondary, don't do it in a plastic fermentation bucket, which is the worst possible choice, both because of O2 permeability and large headspace.So I am almost ready to transfer and had a question on transfer. I am primary in a carboy and going into a bucket. How do I do that?
I agree. My beers sit in the primary 3 to 4 weeks and clear, or not, depending on the recipe or style. They turn out just fine without the added risk of transfering to another vessel.You just don't efing do secondaries without a very good reason. Skip it, leave it in the primary till its done, let it settle, bottle it, done.
And in any case, never ever do a secondary in a bucket.
https://www.northernbrewer.com/products/legend-of-lutra-kveik-extract-recipe-kitLegend of Lutra™ is a recipe kit we have formulated to really let this unique and clean yeast/kveik strain shine. The simple malt base is inspired by the pervasive American Lager style and then bolstered with a small amount of light caramel malt to lend a golden hue, while a modest dose of hops provide just enough bitterness to balance. The real star of the show is Omega's Lutra™ kveik strain and its incredible versatility. Temperature control is not needed with this strain - ferment it at room temperature for a lager-like finish, or let it crank at 90F and you will be hard-pressed to find a flavor difference. This yeast strain is a game-changer and is legendary in its own right.
I think they just want to sell more vessels, otherwise it wouldn't make any sense to recommend a secondary here.
That seems to be the often stated consensus here at HomeBrewTalk over the past couple of years.I think they just want to sell more vessels
There is some good information on You Tube. I have learned so much from watching it. Like everything in life, you still get get multiple ways of doing things & working out which way is the best can still be very confusing.There is an auto siphon... But being new, I don't know how to use it. YouTube is good but like to hear from the pros
There's a lot of helpful and knowledgeable people here for sure, have helped me many times. But actually seeing people brewing while explaining, instead of just writing information, is really helpful for a beginner.There is an auto siphon... But being new, I don't know how to use it.

Yes that! I very much like to watch videos and see how other people make beer, so many good ideas. And some not so many also but after a while you figure out what is not a good idea or what really won’t work for you.There's a lot of helpful and knowledgeable people here for sure, have helped me many times.
