(Sorry if this comes in twice)

I recently brewed some porter using 9 1/2 lbs of Dark LME (a pouring
accident). With it I used some specialty grains, the usual amount of
hops, and Wyeast liquid Ale yeast (Irish).

After it appeared to be through fermenting, I racked to a secondary and
let it sit for a few days. When I came back to check it I noticed that there
were tiny little islands of foam floating on top. While the hydrometer
reading was too high, I didn't taste yeast - it was just very sweet.

My question(s) - is this wort not done fermenting yet? Should I re-pitch
another package of Irish Ale Yeast?

I haven't seen the fermentation lock bubble, but there is a small amount
of pressure (maybe my wort is acting as a barometer :) in the carboy.

I'm planning on bottling soon, but if anyone thinks I should add more
yeast, then I'd love to hear from you.

Cheers,
