I had my barley wine in the primary for two weeks. No activity through the airlock. I racked it to secondary on Saturday and now it is actively fermenting again. The primary is of the plastic bucket type and the secondary is glass carboy (5 gallon). I did leave a little space and now that is filled with bubbles. The OG was 1.133 and SG at racking time was 1.062. I have it under my steps in the basement and it is a little warmer than it was a few days ago (10 degres F). Did I perhaps disturb the yeast enough to get them going again? Slightly higher temps helping? Is this normal for such a high gravity beer?
