I made an American IPA brew using:
 9.9 lbs Light LME
 2   oz  UK Kent Goldings Whole Leaf hops (FWH)
 1   oz  UK Kent Goldings Whole Leaf hops (20 min)
 1   oz  UK Kent Goldings Whole Leaf hops (40 min)
 1   oz  UK Kent Goldings Whole Leaf hops (55 min)
 1   oz  UK Kent Goldings Whole Leaf hops (flame out)
         EasYeast American Ale yeast

I brought 6.5 gallons of water to boil; turned off the heat; added the
LME and stirred like a madman then added the first 2 oz of hops. I then
let it sit and steep for 15 min. I re-lit the burner andd restored the
boil. After the hot break I started the 60 min count.

After 60 minutes I turned of the burner and added the last oz of hops,
covered the pot and let it sit while I ate dinner. 55 minutes later I
started the wort chiller (wort temp was still 95°). Starting gravity was
1.066 @ 66° I forgot to whirlpool when I racked to the primary ferment
bucket. I didn't top off with water, so my final volume was about 4.5
gallons. The yeast was EasYeast American Ale yeast. Pitched and
stirred/aerated like a madman.

This was all done on 23 September. I was going to rack to secondary, but
I still have activity in the bubbler about every 15 seconds.

Finally my question: should I just rack to secondary and let it finish
up there?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Fermentation Question



Give it a couple more days then check the gravity.  What temp are you
fermenting at?
