This will mean less yeast on the bottom of your bottle too.

Racking is not necessary but I find it speeds up the clearing process. It's really a personal choice. Good luck!
In the fermenter (20C, no fermentation active), the two phases are not detectable, so I'm gonna bottling it today, also because it's better for me in terms of organization.
Isn't a two-three weeks period in the fermenter with fermentation finished too much? According to some manuals there would be risk of autolysis with releasing of bad flavors.

I've gone 9 weeks in the primary with no autolosys and I have reports of over 8 months with good results. Autolosys is part of the past wrapped with results from big breweries and perpetuated by out-of-date manuals that nobody has bothered to update. Those manuals should be burned.

The reason you saw the different layers (the trub settling out) in your fridge sample is because you were cold crashing it. Lowering the temperature like that will help all the suspended junk settle out. If you can cold crash your carboy for a day or two before you bottle you will see the same results in the carboy and have much less sediment on the bottom of your bottles.

Yes, I agree.
