In my experience, spiced beers do a bit better with time, so I tend to use a secondary on them.
Well, this will be my last brew for a while, so I'm not that concerned with washing the yeast. I figure if I put a cheese cloth around the bottling spigot I should be able to keep most of the gunk out of the bottles. I don't have anything on deck, so I can keep it in the primary without reason to transfer. Thanks for the input.
