So this is my second brew that I've done. I did the brewers best English brown ale. The only thing I did to modify it was add one pound of dextrose to it to raise the abv just a little. I brewed it on Friday night and got an OG of 1.052. The kit had Nottingham ale yeast. When I woke up on Saturday morning the air lock was already bubbling like crazy. Then on Sunday it had already slowed down and now, on Monday afternoon, the bubbling is almost non existent. I tested the SG and its at 1.014. The instructions for the kit say 5-7 in the primary and then, when fermentation has slowed but before its complete, to transfer to secondary if you choose to do so. My understanding from the reading I've done and browsing this forum was that the secondary isn't really for fermentation, just to clear the beer and result in a better taste. So, my questions are: why would it have fermented so fast? And would it hurt to just leave in the primary for the week I was planning on before racking to the secondary, even if the fermentation has already stopped by then?? Or just go ahead and rack it now?? Thanks in advance for the feedback.
