Irish Ale – Racked to secondary fermentor

After 7 days in the primary fermentor. Last weekend on Sunday afternoon, I racked off the Irish ale to a secondary fermentor.

The final gravity after 7 days was 1.024, when the target gravity was suppose to be ~1.014. But after racking the beer to the secondary, enough yeast was kicked up to get the fermentation going again. I have a good feeling that in about another 10 days in the secondary that it should finish fermenting down to the target FG. I guess only time will tell.

  • both halves of the batches we made were 1.020 going into secondary. I’m sure they’ll ferment out a little more with the extra O2 mixed in. We also need to come up with a good name…
