That brings up an interesting point. In the few recipes I've done, the instructions seem to suggest fermenting for only 2 weeks. Yet, for me 3 seems safer since I can sometimes see activity after 2. In this case, I might want to keep it in the primary for 2 weeks then rack to secondary with the hops.
I didn't mention it but I'm also using pellets which is why I was thinking a sack would be nice to keep out debris. Now that I think about it, the one I have is fairly large though. I might want to get a smaller one. My primary/secondary are BetterBottles and it might be hard to remove them after I'm done.
