Kudos to walker for keeping the thread on topic.

I know were past beechwood aging already but I just have to hammer home that the technique is not for wood flavor. They boil the buhgeezus out if those woodchunks then put them at the bottom of the fermenter for enhanced nucleation.

Afterall, it is bud. Do you taste any wood character? No.

Thank you, I appreciate the answer.

No problem. And to reiterate....

If you want to do a secondary on a future brew, I would suggest using the bottling bucket as the primary. Then transfer to the plain bucket for a secondary, and finally back to the bottling bucket on bottling day.

it provides more surface area for your yeast to collect on.

The intent is that more surface area means less yeast in the finished product and possibly a cleaner yeast character.
