Fermentation time

My recipe calls for 7 days in the primary, which is today. However, I'm still getting some bubbles through the airlock. Maybe 1/minute. I realize that it will keep fermenting after I move it over to the secondary. My concern is that if I do go ahead and move it over, that a lot of yeast will end up ...

Is this okay?

This is my third brew. I woke up this morning to this crazy fermentation (video):

Is this something normal(ish)?

Slothrob, it sounds like you are transferring your beer out of your secondary to another bucket in your bottling process? Is that correct? How are you transferring it? Syphon? I hadn't heard of this.

Beer type advice?

Hello Beertools community :) I'm a beginner at this "activity", but I am really enjoying it. Not just the beer, but it's nice to spend the evening doing beer stuff w/music on. Moving on, I've done 2 partial mash brews, both with pleasing results. The first was a very hoppy pale ale. The second, ligh...

Carbonation chaos....

I did my first PM brew, a hoppy APA. The flavor is great. It's bottled half in 22 oz and half in 12 oz. The thing is that in some (of each size) the carbonation is perfect, but in others it's too high, and others it's very low. What I am suspecting is that the priming sugar kinda sunk in the carboy ...
