new to homebrewing...do i need a secondary fermenter?

Postby corinne » Sun Jan 15, 2006 5:14 am

i am on my 2nd homebrewbrew....when i purchased my homebrew kit, it included a 5 gallon glass carboy and one 6.5 gallon plastic bucket (and told it was for the bottling process only). i've brewed with friends before and they use the primary fermentor (the glass carboy) from start (pitching yeast) to the finish (transfer to plastic bucket for bottling). after reading the site's intro to brewing, it sounds like i should transfer the beer to a secondary after a week. is this necessary?

Hmm what kind of beer did you make. I'd say if its a low gravity extract brew you should be fine without secondary fermentation. Secondary fermentation is used to transfer your beer off the dead yeast once primary fermentation is done. If it sits on the dead yeast longer than 2 weeks it will give your beer a rubbery taste. secondary fermentation also helps clarify the beer since you siphon the beer all the trub that has settled to the bottom of the fermentor... and it will also help the ingredients in your beer mold together better if say you have multiple types of specialty grain involved. If you enjoy the hobby and really get into it you will really want to start using secondary fermentation.
