Well onto my third batch, i racked the beer into the 2nd about three days later.
I am getting curious about when to rack over to the secondary. the SG was
at .019 and should goto about .015. the beer was'nt done but i racked it anyway. Can someone
tell me if this will cause any trouble, does the yeast get left behind, or is there enough in supension to
go the extra mile or two till completion, i havent had any trouble yet, I am using the "Gyle method" to prime.
So all n all my question is as follows; does racking too soon cause trouble with lost yeast ?
thanks for all your help. FB
