When to transfer to secondary fermenter

Postby Kepler57 » Tue Mar 29, 2005 6:29 pm

I have my Trippel Ale in my primary fermenter (6.5 gallon bucket) and i was wondering when to rack to secondary. My starting OG was 1.068 and it has been fermenting for 3.5 days. I dont want to wait to long and then have fermentation stop completely.

Rack away!

Well you can rack it into a secondary fermentor anytime now. My personal preference is to wait anywhere from 4-7 days until the major action is over and then rack. Whatever makes you happy. Just curious, what kind of yeast did you use for your tripel? I love Belgian ales. Fred :mrgreen:
