Brewing Beer: Belgian Style Ales into the Secondary

Its been about seven days since I brewed the two Belgian Style Ales. What has happened in the last week since I put them in the primary?
  • One overflowed a bit. This is becoming a habit :-/
  • The temperature in my basement was a bit too warm at 70-75 degrees for a day or so.
  • I've been eagerly awaiting a chance to taste them.
  • The yeast starter really did the trick. I split a large starter between two batches and they both took off overnight with no problems.
The question is, should I brew another batch of something with the yeast on the bottom of the primary? I do have some extra kegs, Bryan's carboy, Jeremy's carboy, a can of liquid American Rice extract (freebie), and some amber liquid extract. Hmmm...I'll have to think about that. I'll at least rack those two into the secondary. Cheers!
