Subject: How long is o.k. in Secondary?
Date: 1990-04-26 18:47:00 GMT

G'day to all!

I am doing my first two stage fermentation. But, I'm not to sure about
what to do.

I am making a Maple Syrup Stout. I racked it into the carboy after the
krauzen(sp?) fell. It's been in the secondary for a week and a half now, as
of 4/26.

How long can it sit in the secondary? There is still some activity in there.
There is also a fair amount of sediment buildup. I don't have a meter, so I
don't know what the SG is.

It looks as though it is doing just fine. I'm just curious as to how long
to let it go. I have heard across the net of people letting thier secondary
go for a month or two.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanx in advance,
