This video is the second portion in a series of educational videos aimed to help you become a better brewer and/or to troubleshoot any issues you have during your brew day. Our Introduction to Brewing Series has two parts and covers the hot and cold sides of brewing your first batch of homebrew! In the segments of Part I, we covered everything you need to get an extract ingredient recipe kit into your fermenter. In the segments of Part II, we cover the cold side procedures, including transferring to a secondary and bottling your first batch.
 
In this segment, we cover: --Timing and the reasons for transferring to a secondary --Using a racking cane/auto-siphon to transfer your wort --Glass vs. plastic fermenters and secondary fermenters --Safely transporting and storing your secondary --Sanitation and best practices

 What do you need? --A primary fermenter full of beer that has fermented for at least 7 days --A clean and sanitized secondary fermenter, airlock, and bung --An auto-siphon or racking cane and tubing long enough to reach from your primary to your secondary --Star-San or a similar sanitizer --PBW or a similar cleaner for pre- and post-transfer cleaning

 And don't forget to check back for future installments that cover a broad range of brewing education for beginning through advanced brewers. Thanks for watching!

 Thanks and have fun brewing better beer!
