Even more of a relief I think........Just came home peeked at my primary and the airlock is bubbling away vigourously and foaming and all wort coming out of the top.......never brewed a beer with this vigorous of a fermentation going on it is a beautiful thing.......I may even have to put a blow off tube its so bad =)

If I were you I wouldn't secondary. I'm against it for almost all ales, but especially with that yeast. I've used it and it drops like a rock after a week or so, it'll clear fine on it's own without the extra hassle of racking or risk of oxidizing and contamination.

Really no secondary? So just leave it in the primary for the extra 2 weeks or so before bottling?

Yep- I haven't used a secondary in aeons. (well, except for my high-gravity beers). Anything under 1.080 or so spends 3-4 weeks in primary, then off to the keg (or bottling bucket in your case). The extra time in primary allows the yeast to clean up after itself.

Absolutely. I keep my beers in primary for 3-4 weeks sometimes. Just use your hydrometer to ensure that you've hit your FG, and bottle when it looks like the yeast has dropped out. Sometimes it takes 3 weeks for me, sometimes 10 days.

It's messy, but you'll be OK- as long as stuff is coming out, there's no way for anything to get in.
