Your recipe will indicate how long the fermentation process lasts. While your beer is setting for one to three months, check on it periodically to make sure bubbles are coming through your air lock. This will be slow at first, then intensify, and you’ll know it’s finishing when this process slows again. Once your beer has finished fermenting—that is, when the gurgling and churning is done—you can leave it right where it is or move it into a secondary. Some people transfer into a secondary (another carboy) to avoid the dreaded autolysis, or yeast cannibalism.

Remember your optimal strike water target temperature is 152-160°F; any higher can bring unwanted reactions with the grains and one reaction can cause the destruction of vital starches and sugars necessary for fermentation.

Use your thermometer.
