I am fermenting my first batch of beer, A typical pub ale.
Had the wort in the primary for 5 days ( Airlock went up to 60 bubbles/min)
When the airlock got down to 10 bubbles/min I racked it to the secondary
It has been in the secondary for 8 days and is at 1 bubble/min
When should I begin hydrometer reading to determine if the fermentation is
complete?

Wait until it is completely finished bubbling, then wait a couple more days,
then it should be ready for a hydrometer reading and bottling.  If you
bottle too early, your bottles may explode.  It happened to me!
