I get clear beer with just a primary. If you have gunk out of the primary you are probably not
racking carefully enough.Late extract addition may or may not effect you IBU's. It's debatable

I think you moved it to the secondary too soon. You don't want to move a beer out of the
primary fermenter until it has reached it's final gravity. You didn't leave enough yeast to
finish the fermenta...

I add 0.5lb sugar for every 1lb DME after the original 6lb LME/5lb DME. No more than 1lb for

Maybe. Take a gravity reading.

The airlock bubbling doesn't mean it is still fermenting. The only way to tell if it is still
fermenting is to check the gravity a couple days apart.

5 gallon nylon paint strainer bags from Home Depot/Menards. I wash them then sanitize before
using. They fit over the sides of the bucket easily. Just pour into the bucket then lift it
out. Sanitize y...

You should be fine. I wouldn't recommended doing anything with it either way but with a beer
that low you shouldn't have any problems. You may have some issues with the dark extract
fermenting. I usua...
