I only secondary if I am racking onto fruit or making something that ages (like a barleywine). I primary for 2 or 4 weeks and then I bottle or keg.

If you leave in primary then straight to keg or bottle you don't think there are any off favors due to the years cake? I tried that w one batch and something seemed off I thought that might be it?
