How do you know when secondary fermentation is complete?
Different brewers have different ways of knowing when secondary fermentation is complete. For example, some brewers use hydrometers to measure the specific gravity of the wort before and after fermentation.

Other brewers simply wait a certain amount of time (usually two to three weeks) before bottling or kegging the beer.
