I have never tried it, true. Someone I know did and he thought it contributed to cider like flavor in a beer he made with sucrose, which is why my post contained the words "I have heard". I did not...

You can't damage your beer by leaving it in the primary for 2 or 3 weeks. It is good to leave it in the primary so that the yeast can clean up the undesirable by-products of fermentation. Depending...

Did you open the lid at the 2 day mark to see if there was any krausen in the bucket that had no airlock activity? There would not be any now, but there would be residue on the inside of the bucket.

Also, it can't possibly be conditioned at this point. Package it up, let it condition and taste again in 3 weeks. It might be better, but if it does have acetaldehyde, it might not.

No, 001 is very clean. What kind of beers was it used in? If you list recipes and procedures it might help some of the experienced people on here to pinpoint a cause to your off flavors/aromas.
