The consensus here is, no need to secondary unless you are using adjuncts. The thought used to be getting the wort off the yeast as soon as possible would produce cleaner tasting beer. When racking into another vessel, there is always the possibility of oxidation and/or infection to deal with, so moving your wort as little as possible is best.

I got two better bottles this weekend and tossed my coopers kit in it. Mostly so I can save on equipment by freeing up my primary/bottling bucket for the next beer, or bottling an existing one; I wasn't too concerned about extra clarity that may or may not be present by the time bottle conditioning is done.

Unless I missed it, the secondary was not purged and there was massive head space. Also, transferring to secondary after only one week and not cold crashing primary first leaves a lot yeast in suspension. In effect retaining the yeasts influence on the finished beer which negates the point of dry hopping in a secondary.

Nice effort, but no sound conclusions can be drawn from this experiment.
