My brews been sitting in primary for 2 weeks now and there is still some krausen, as I define it anyway, on top. Bubbling is pretty slow. Should I rack to secondary?

I've read that most of you rack to secondary when the krausen falls. Is that to be interpreted that the top should be free of all junk?

No, the krausen has fallen when you have some foam, some ale showing. As long as an ale is fermenting, however slightly, there will be floaties. And sometimes beyond.

If it still looks like this, leave it alone.
