You don't boil?
Most people will advise you to do at least a 3-week primary and skip the secondary. If you're worried about clarity, you can do a secondary with gelatin and cold crash, or use whirlfloc (which is an irish moss derivative) fifteen minutes from the end of the boil.
Edit: My bad, just looked it up, no boil required... Whirlfloc isn't an option since you don't boil. Typically a strong boil will take care of clarity issues, and whirlfloc or gelatin will help. I'd definitely recommend a long primary with an optional secondary and cold crash.
