I am working on a small batch, 1 gallon of Pale Ale. It came in a kit and the yeast was not labeled so I am not sure what kind it is. This is only the third batch I have brewed. On my first two batches I saw a lot of activity by the second day and things died down by day seven, I racked to secondary (these were 5 gallon batches) on the 7th or 8th day.
What I am unsure how to handle is, on the 7th day there is more activity than there has been all week. Seems obvious that I should not interrupt the process, but being new I wanted to ask.
- Is this normal?
- Since this is a one gallon batch should I just keep it in primary for 3 weeks and not worry about secondary?
The OG was 1.06 (if that helps)
