I'm on my second Brewhouse Kit, IPA flavour. I thought I'd try adding 1 oz of Cascadia hops to the secondary just because I LOVE HOPS!
It has been quite active since and that was over 3 weeks ago. Should I wait until there is no action in the secondary before I rack into bottles?

When you transferred it. But you can add them any time.

Just curious, what is the reasoning behind this?
