Risky giving advice about these things because there are lots of
ways that work. Any everyone develops their own procedure.
Kegging after three weeks in the primary and sticking in the fridge works.
I usually leave four weeks in the primary, then keg, then stick in the fridge.
I do four weeks for all my beers (currently just ales) based on stuff I read
on these forums and it is easy on my schedule.
Since you are new to kegging, my advice (such as it is), don't try
a secondary just to condition the beer. Lots can go wrong.
Instead do a few batches straight from primary to kegging and maybe
then try a secondary for conditioning. This way you will have a baseline
to compare to.
