Do I NEED to Rack my Porter to Secondary?
« on: June 20, 2018, 06:31:06 PM »
I brewed up a Brewer's Best Robust Porter extract kit 2 1/2 weeks ago. Normally, I rack my beers to secondary after 2 weeks, but am a bit late.  So far, every beer I've made has been racked to secondary. Is it necessary to rack a Porter to secondary, or even, at all?  Thanks.

You don't really need to rack 99% of your beers to secondary.  Here's what John Palmer had to say....https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=15108.msg191642#msg191642

Thanks!  I'll let it sit in primary for another 1-1/2 weeks, then keg.
