I started a 5 gal batch of methyglin on 12/28. Just got a call to go to Texas to work and I will not be back for at least 6 weeks. I am still getting a bubble through the airlock about every 2.5-3 seconds.

Do I need to go ahead and rack to a secondary, or will it be ok for 6 weeks?

71B is the only yeast which might give you problems but even then if it's still a good active fermentation when you leave, it should be OK for 6 weeks.

If you rack it too early you can stall it out, if the airlock's still going like that it's probably not a great idea.
