No I'm not. The original recipe says to add the AE to an empty fermenter and rack to it, then let it sit 2 weeks. The beer gets super clear this way.
That's not to say that any other way won't work. The two step method is an easy way to get clarity w/o minimal effort or equipment.
Try leaving the AE in some clean beer and let it sit. I would recommend racking on top of AE though.
