Default Secondary in a Cornie

If I rack to a Keg, do I want to 'burp' the keg, or do I want to let any additional CO2 build up in the keg? This will be the time for conditioning, and my intention is not to drink it yet.

Leave it be and you'll have cask conditioned beer (if you add priming sugar and serve from that keg)

Or burp and move to a serving keg and force carb.

In other words: Any way you want.

so you plan to rack to the keg but NOT hook it to CO2?

I plan to rack to the cornie, let it sit for 4 weeks or so, and then force carb.

Should I burp or no? :-) And thank you all!

Assuming your fermentation is complete, there is no need to burp it until before you connect to CO2. As far as conditioning, we do it all the time, however we also add priming sugar so it is ready to go in 3-4 weeks. You may want to turn it upside down for a day or so to make certain you have a seal.

You won't be able to rack it completely over without burping it, unless you push it with a couple hundred PSI.

Ah, sorry, I thought you were transferring. There's no reason to burp, if it's staying in the same vessel.

Or rack it with the lid off

Just rack it and hit it with CO2 to seal the lid, burp it a couple times to release oxygen, then store for intended period of time.

I don't understand this statement? I am assuming the OP is simply racking out of the primary fermentor into a cornie?

edit: Never mind? I'm confused?
