Is secondary ferm needed?
 
I have read alot of post saying that secondary is not really needed. I thought the yeast would give an off taste to the brew if left in to long past fermentation?

AFAIK, the yeast might give an off taste if the beer is left for a really really really long time on top of the yeast cake (we're talking months).

But most people use the "secondary" as a bright tank.

If you've read the posts, then why do we need to answer again? This is the most discussed topic on here, it has been for 5 years. Why do we need to repeat the discussion again for you?

This is the most thorough and ongoing thread about it...All your questions are taken care of here-The hows, they why's, the whens, and what the nay sayers STILL say after all these years that we have countered or just ignored...the who schmere, the whole shebang all in one handy dandy thread......;

At this point either read what's already here or do it and figure it out for yourself. But do you really want to further beat this horse to death?

I mean it's been beaten, resurected, beaten, zombified and beaten again, I think you can find enough info on here already....even as current as a couple hours ago in the above thread.

How about a "beating a dead horse" smiley? Something like this: http://www.buzzlife.com/forums/image.../deadhorse.gif

Yeah I hadn't noticed that. Hilarious. I think the top one is supposed to be laughing after it strikes the horse, but it kind of looks like it is chewing.

Well I wish I had the time to dedicate to reading every post on here about secondary fermentation. Just looking for some answers and you could have pointed me in the right direction with out being a dbag about it.
