Hello, I had my first brew day on Saturday (1/10/15). It is Caribou Slobber that came with my first kit, and everything went great. Within six hours of putting the wort into the primary fermenter, the bubbler was going crazy, and I had a very thick KRÄUSEN layer on my hands. This continued for about 18 hours, and then the bubbler slowed, and of course, now the KRÄUSEN layer is all but gone.
I understand that this is all a natural part of active fermentation, but I guess I was expecting to last longer. The instructions saying active fermentation lasts 1 to 2 weeks, yet here I am only about 48 hours in and it is waning big time.
Does active fermentation continue once the bubbles stop or should I consider moving it to secondary before 1 week?
