Secondary Fermenter Loaded

Transferred to the carboy tonight at around 8 pm. The airlock was down to one very lazy bubble on occasion and the temp was again at 68 F. Pulled a sample for the refractometer and according to it, the SG is about half way from start to finish. Transferred it too soon... still learning here.

I will now leave the house thermostat alone at 70 F and not fiddle with it for a couple weeks. We'll see how this turns out.


  1. Keep in mind that the Vikings made beer and innoculated it with the yeast using the "magic spoon" that was never washed, passed down from generation to generation. It's really hard to completely mess it up.

    1. Quite true and I don't think I have done it any real harm. I just tend to futz with stuff more than it needs.
