Believe me, after three years of doing the long primary/ no secondary I find no need to go back to doing it any other way. The quality of my beers has upped 10 ten fold.

As have my scores in contests.
Thanks man I feel much better now. Can't wait to try the Octoberfest this weekend

It's not that I want a beer with no sediment, it is easily left in the bottle, but it is just the process I use.
I don't filter at all, sometimes even dumping my entire kettle contacts into the bucket, and half the time I forget to add finnings like moss in my boil. It;s not complicated, I leave my beer alone for 1 month. Then rack to a bottling bucket and bottle. and I've never even cold crashed I don't have a sediment issue whatsoever. Maybe ymmv, but I have had no problems with leavin gmy beer in primary and having them come out crystal clear and very bright tasting after a month.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

My findings are similar to Revvy. I always leave my beer in primary for 4-6 weeks. No trub in the bottle issues either. One of the best moves I've made next to late addition of malt and other fermentables to the boil. These 2 things have increased my quality 100 fold really.
