Default Secondary Rest

I'm just curious as to what is the longest that you have had a brew in the primary or secondary?

Currently have a batch that was in the primary for 10days and now has been in the secondary for a month. Today I am dry hopping it for about 7 days then straight into a keg and the fridge.

What is the longest you have gone with a batch in the secondary?

Any concerns with ill effects?

Thanks

This is the most discussed topic on here, there's plenty of info.

I primary all my beers a minimum of a month. Longest I have secondaried, a year for a huge beer.

There are no ill effects from doing either, those are things we do to IMPROVE our beers.
