Well that's what traditionally people used secondary for, that and the above methods, BUT over the last couple years in many brewing circles there has been a shift away from that into leaving it in primary longer to acheive the same, if not better result.
Like I said in my previous post, I have noticed that by leaving it in primary for a month, my beer looks clearer and tastes cleaner
, then when I used to secondary at 2 weeks, for an extra two weeks.
Like so much in brewing there is no better way to do it, they both acheive the same gal. And the preffered methond
is the one that works for YOU.
You can read all the debates and discussions on here....but ultimately all you need to do is try one method this time, and try another method the next time, and decide what you think works best for you process.
