Default Don't try to stop me!!!!!

Tomorrow morning I am going to rack my first beer to a secondary fermenter. I have heard both sides of the issue and believe in my heart that it really doesn’t matter if I do or I don‘t. The truth is that this is my first beer and I am going to rack the bastard.

Wish me luck.

Go for it man and then fill up your fermenter with a new batch. Do what you got to do to fill that pipeline

I'm not going to be one of those guys to say one way or the other, beer is beer , and I hope you like it.

No splashing, no oxygenation.
I'm not about to try and talk you out of doing anything with your own beer.
Is there a reason you want to secondary?
I have been, by the way. But my next beer is not going to be, because I am learning, and I want to see the results I get without doing it. I started doing it due to the instructions that come with the kits, but the next one: primary, then bottles.
Good luck!

Agreed. Go for it. It'll be good practice for you though. When you rack it, make sure to have the beer go in as smooth as possible. Don't let it splash.

Rack away...

I did that for my first brew. Now I have more fermenters than I can keep full, so I just let them sit.

Learn patience, it is the most important ingredient in brewing (after barley, hops, water, yeast and Star San), and buy more fermentors. Food grade plastic buckets are cheap.

make sure you get the siphon tubing to the bottom of the carboy, keeps the splashing and the O2 pickup to a minimum.

Autolysis is not really a problem on the homebrew scale. If you are making 5 or 10 gallon batches (like most of us), you will never actually experience autolysis unless you let the beer sit in primary for more than 6 months.
