Batch #2 - San Fransisco Steam

Now that the first batch is bottled, the fermenter is open. Wasting no time I instantly purchased my second ingredient kit from The San Francisco Steam Ale. In my reading (John Palmer's "How to Brew," an excellent read) he talks about the aging of the beer flavors and secondary fermentation. Of course I was impatient, so I bottled my first batch as soon as possible (and I'm very excited to pop the first cap Wednesday). My plan for the second batch is to wait. Once it's good and done fermenting I will transfer it to my secondary fermenter, where I will let it sit for another 2 to 3 weeks (or longer if my bottles are still being used, not likely).
