I like it 'cause I plan on building it in such a way that I dont hafta lift the flamin carboy, but can merely drain it to another carboy and harvest the yeast.
I have left beer on trub for almost a month and have seen no effects. It takes months for yeast to go into autolysis. By then my beer is bottled and perhaps consumed!
