I’m still pretty new at this, but it seems like I’m finding that I get the best settling immediately after racking off to a new container.
Yesterday morning I racked to secondary. There wasn’t much sediment on the bottom of the primary vessels, maybe a half inch or so. This morning I went down to add fruit, and there was an inch of sediment on the bottom. I recall the same thing on my previous brews as well. I even noticed it going into tertiary, the one time I did so.
Can someone tell me why this seems to be so?
Am I just racking to secondary too quickly? (These were started 1/14, and appeared to be finished fermenting about a week ago, although they’re still a bit gassy)
